Abeja Reina

Abeja Reina means ‘Queen Bee’ in Spanish, and is a type of rum sour created by David Cordoba in 2005. Acacia is recommended for this simple drink because it mixes easily with vanilla syrup and won’t overpower the BACARDÍ Carta Oro rum or the lemon juice.


50 ml BACARDÍ Carta Oro Rum
25 ml acacia honey & vanilla syrup
25 ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice


Pour the BACARDÍ Carta Oro rum, acacia honey & vanilla syrup, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker and add some ice cubes. Then give it all a quick and vigorous shake. Fine strain the mix into a glass filled with cubed ice.
