The Bees Knees cocktail lives up to its name with warm honey flavors and a beautiful golden color. A traditional summer cocktail, our Bees Knees recipe includes gin, lemon juice, and a honey simple syrup. 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.
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.
