How To Make A Bee’s Knees Cocktail

Bee's Knees Cocktail

The Bee’s Knees is a classic Prohibition-era cocktail made with gin, lemon and honey. It’s brightly flavored, lightly sweet, and just an overall delightful drink. It also feels perfect for the season!


– 50ml Gin
– 25ml Lemon Juice
– 15ml Honey syrup


1. Add the gin, lemon juice and honey syrup into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.

2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

3. Garnish with a lemon twist.

We used our collaboration with Long Dog Gin as the gin base, which is full of succulent citrus fruits rounded out by rosemary and thyme. On the note piney juniper, succulent citrus and green herbs shine with abundance. On the palate it’s super smooth, juniper first but it gives way to a huge burst of juicy citrus offering a tug of war between sweet and bitter, finishing with the green savoury notes of rosemary and thyme. In the cocktail, it only adds to the charm! Feel free to swap this out for a gin of your own choosing.
