Home of the the best (and probably only) jazz brunch in Boston, The Beehive also boasts a fantastic and seasonally rotating cocktail line-up to accompany a stellar selection of cajun, nouveux-american plates. Not many better activities in Boston than watching late night jazz at a table for two with a Beehive fizz and a plate of their sage fries. Live music until 2 AM makes it one of the only places in town open late and something definitely worth noting.
This particular drink is one that's stuck with me after I sipped on circa March 2011. All it requires on your end is the simple syrup which is inherently....well, simple. Leave the rest to JD and Canda Dry tonic and you're in biznaz, my friends.
