Bee's Knees Cocktail Recipe

The Bee's Knees Cocktail

Spring time is approaching and we thought it would be fun to make some bright and fun cocktails to enjoy even if the Scotish weather isn’t working in our favor! This is a fun cocktail called the Bee’s Knees named after the classic phrase used in the 20th century. It is thought that the phrase came about due to the fact bees carried the lovely pollen to and from their hives creating wonderful honey, so all the goodness is being carried in the ‘bee’s knees’ ! Fun little fact for the day for you! 

The Bee’s Knees cocktail came about during the prohibition era with honey and lemon juice disguising the taste of poorly made bathtub gin. However, from this cocktail you can create a range of variations, French 75, Tom Collins etc. 


60 mls Wild Rose Gin   

25 mls Honey

15 mls Sugar Syrup

25mls Lemon Juice

Lemon Twist for garnish

 1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, pour all ingredients in order. Shake hard for 15 secs.

2. Double strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
