Honey honey

Whoo! We have just produced a batch of honey from the beehive in the Mustapha's Place garden. We are going to use it in our cocktails, such as "Dawa" (Swahili for medicine), a cocktail that includes vodka, lots and lots of fresh lime and honey. It's the Swahili version of a hot toddy, and surprisingly effective if you are going down with a cold or flu.

The honey should taste good with all the tropical flowers in the garden - I'm not sure what the bees feast on the most, but frangipani and hibiscus abound.
