The Killer Bee cocktail is a type of drink that typically contains honey, lemon juice, and hot sauce, along with a spirit such as whiskey or tequila. It’s a spicy, sweet and sour drink that is known for its intense flavor and its ability to pack a punch.

The origin of the Killer Bee cocktail is not entirely clear, but it is believed to have originated in Texas or Mexico, where honey and hot sauce are both commonly used in cooking and drinks. Some versions of the cocktail also include ginger or other spices, and the type of spirit used can vary depending on personal preference.
