A Midsummer tipple, Minoan style

Summer Solstice is coming up soon. This season always makes me think of fuzzy honeybees meandering from flower to flower, sipping the nectar and carrying it back to the hive to make honey. People have loved honey for millennia, and the ancient Minoans were no different. They brewed the honey-wine called mead to drink at festive occasions such as the Summer Solstice.
