Your favorite basic cake mix and frosting,the hexagons are cut out sugar cookie dough and baked, then brushed with a bit of white corn syrup and dipped in colored sugar. the &#8220;bees&#8221; are black jellybeans with yellow icing over them and their wings are almond slices adhered with a little icing. ENJOY! (for a special treat, you can drizzle the combs with a little honey before you serve them) YUM YUM

Have you ever had a Pickleback before? Although it is similar sounding don’t worry it has no relation to the band Nickleback.
The Pickleback aka “the Piskey” aka “the bartenders handshake” is one of the most delightful shots in the world. Well that is of course if you are a fan of pickles. It’s quite simple really the Pickleback is a shot of whiskey ( Jameson’s Irish Whiskey for best results) followed immediately by a shot of pickle brine. The pickle brine is the lemon to your tequila working to neutralize the whiskey taste and quickly dimnish the burn of the alcohol.
Whiskey and I don’t get along. (stop reading mom) Perhaps because my first experience with it was straight out of a pop can being a rebel under age drinking. (continue reading mom) Or maybe it’s because I’m not a  burly man, because that’s who drinks whiskey right? Just Googled “Who drinks Whiskey” and came up with this site  www.realmendrinkwhiskey.com point proven.
However the Pickleback is another story. I LOVE THE PICKLEBACK. I was first introduced to it by my friend Pamela while in Banff on my Cross Canada Road Trip this past summer. I was really weary of it when I was told what it was, but I thought “Why not?”. I feared the whiskey the most but with my friend Candice at my side trying it with me, I took a breath and shot it back. I felt a brief moment of burn as I grabbed for the pickle brine and then delight rushed through my mouth chasing after the whiskey down my esophagus and I wanted more.

&#8212;clearly this isn&#8217;t my anecdote&#8230;.but it made me laugh so i had to share. ;)
