Bee's Knees

The Bee’s Knees is a classic cocktail traditionally made with gin, honey, and lemon juice. In this recipe, we also added a splash of orange juice which was made popular by the mixologist David Embury in his 1948 book The Fines Art of Mixing Drinks in which he says, "The addition of a small amount of orange juice makes for an interesting variation".

This recipe is strong, yet refreshing and sweet, made with our Njord Distilled Slow Sloe gin for added sweetness.
