The Bees Knees cocktail lives up to its name with warm honey flavors and beautiful golden color.
A traditional summer cocktail, our Bees Knees recipe includes gin, lemon juice, and a honey simple syrup. What makes honey such a unique sweetener is that it adds rich, complex flavors to whatever you’re cooking while refined sugar and most other sweeteners just add sweetness.
Since we wanted our Bees Knees to be all about the honey, we add a dab of honey into the cocktail shaker to help bring the honey’s rich, complex flavors to life.
We also include some egg white to smooth everything out and add a little froth.
This is a great cocktail to serve in the summer or fall with fresh grilled vegetables and salads.
- 2 oz gin
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 3/4 oz honey syrup
- 1 oz egg white
- Dab of honey
- Add the gin, lemon juice, honey simple syrup, and egg white to a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice.
- Before shaking, add a dab of honey to the shaker, then shake vigorously for a couple of minutes. If you want to have some fun while you're making your cocktail, throw a little bumblebee dance in there while you're shaking everything up.
- Serve the Bees Knees by straining it into a coupe glass.
