Bee's Knees Cocktail

This Bee’s Knees cocktail tastes phenomenal and is just a simple mix of only three ingredients that (I’m guessing) most of us always have in the house: gin, lemon and honey. It’s intensely sweet, sour and juniper berry/piney. A wonderful spring and summer drink!

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 6 tablespoons ice-cold gin*
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • lemon twists as garnish


  • Combine all ingredients and let them sit for 10 minutes to start letting the honey dissolve.
  • Stir to get all the honey dissolved.
  • Divide between two glasses and serve with lemon twists.


*I recommend to just keep the bottle in the freezer.
