Its been a warm summer so cool down with this delicious Bee's Knees Cocktail made with gin, lemon and honey!
- 15ml Manuka honey syrup
- ½ a medium lemon
- 59 ml gin
- Lemon twist, for garnish
- To make the honey syrup: Combine equal parts honey and water (say, 2 tablespoons each if you’re only making a few cocktails) in a microwave-safe bowl or small saucepan. Warm in the microwave or over the stovetop just until you can completely stir the honey into the water. Set aside.
- Before juicing your lemons, use a vegetable peeler or knife to peel off a strip of zest for your twist.
- To make the cocktail, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the honey syrup, lemon juice and gin. Securely fasten the lid and shake until the mixture is very cold, about 30 seconds.
- Strain the drink into a glass. Twist the lemon peel over the cocktail to release some of its oils, then drop it in.
