The Bee’s Knees

Pretty and simple…

If you’ve never had a Bee’s Knees Cocktail, you’re missing out. It’s a gin based and it’s really easy to make at home with only three ingredients.


• 2 ounces gin

• ¾ ounce honey syrup (or lavender honey syrup)

• ¾ ounce fresh squeezed lemon

• Sprig of lavender for garnish


1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.

2. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

3. Garnish with lavender sprig.


It is said the honey and lemon were added to mask the juniper scent of the gin during Prohibition.
