Bee’s Knees Cocktail

  • Yield 1 servings

Honey, lemon juice and orange juice add punch to this gin cocktail.

The orange juice is optional. Bars in Los Angeles and New York that serve the Bee’s Knees omit it.


1 tablespoon honey
1 fluid ounce gin
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice


  1. Combine all the ingredients and shake well with ice. Strain into a glass.

Note: When made as directed, the honey often forms into a giant ball in the middle of the shaker. To avoid this, combine three parts honey to one part hot water and stir together until completely mixed, then continue with the recipe.
