Bee’s Knees Cocktail

  • Yield: 1 servings

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


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