The Bee’s Knees

IMG_7790

I’m all about classic cocktails, and I find it the easier the better when it comes to creating drinks for entertaining.  With my Meyer lemon tree in full “fruit mode”, I wanted to whip something up that I could add to my “party drink” repertoire.

A cocktail with a fun name never hurt either…

The Bee’s Knees 

  • 2 oz gin (I used Hendrick’s for a cucumber infused kick!)
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz honey syrup (1 oz honey + 1 oz hot water)
  1. Mix above ingredients in an ice filled shaker.
  2. Strain into lowball glass and enjoy!
  3. Garnish with an orange slice or halved kumquats.
