Bees Knees Cocktail

Big up the Bees! This our version of a ‘Bees Knees’ cocktail which has it’s roots way back during Prohibition era America where home brewed ‘Bathtub’ gin was popular.

Bathtub gin was cheap, harsh tasting and pretty disgusting so they used honey to mask the flavour of the spirit. However the gin & honey combo was created and when made with Coxy’s Lavender Gin and our Kent Spiced Honey this is a fantastic drink, sweet & sharp, spiced & floral with a great complexity of flavour which you only get using honey. This is a grown up cocktail that will make you want to dance the Charleston!

50ml Coxy’s Lavender Gin
2 tsp Spiced Kent Honey
25ml fresh lemon juice
25ml fresh orange juice

Measure the gin and honey into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until the honey is dissolved, then add the fresh lemon and orange juice (in the winter try blood orange juice or clementine juice), shake some more and pour into cocktail glasses.
