Bee’s Knees Cocktail Recipe

Bee’s Knees Recipe

Bee's Knees is a classic cocktail and a variation of a gin sour. Instead of simple syrup, a Bee's Knees contains honey water which gives the drink a different character.



  1. Start by diluting the honey so that it can mix more easily with the other ingredients. Heat 2 parts honey together with 1 part water while stirring and allow to cool.
  2. Pour 2 cl honey water, 5 cl gin and 3 cl lemon juice into a shaker.
  3. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until cold.
  4. Strain into a glass and garnish.
