Twisting Spirits Bees Knees Cocktail

Bees Knees Cocktail

Looking for a gin cocktail that works perfectly with our Earl Grey Gin? Then this prohibition-era cocktail that uses honey and fresh lemon juice is perfect! The name comes from prohibition-era slang meaning “the best.” Serve in a martini glass with a twist of orange (you can probably do a better job with the twist than I did for this cocktail!) ?


  • 2 teaspoons runny honey
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 50ml Twisting Spirits Earl Grey distilled gin
  • 15ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 15ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Orange or Lemon twist to garnish

To Make Your Cocktail: Mix the honey with the hot water in a cocktail shaker to dissolve the honey. Fill the shaker with ice and pour in the gin and juices.  Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.  Garnish with the orange twist ?

Let me know what you think! ? Mary
