Bee's Knees Gin Cocktail

It has been a week at our house. The stomach bug hit last weekend and has been viciously cycling through the household – no one was left unaffected. I’m ready for the weekend (although not ready to drink, to be perfectly honest). But hopefully you all are healthy and ready for another cocktail recipe!

Honey and lemon are my go-tos when I’m not feeling so great. I’ll make a honey lemon tea to sip on to soothe whatever my ailment might be. Honey and lemon are also the duo behind one of our go-to cocktails … the Bee’s Knees. I make mine a little sweeter than how it’s typically prepared. Here’s how I do it:

Bee’s Knees
per cocktail

2 oz. gin (we’re currently enjoying our bottle of Barr Hill Gin)
1 oz. lemon juice (or try it with 2 oz. Meyer lemon simple syrup and skip the honey syrup!)
1 oz. honey syrup (see the recipe in last week’s Vermont 75 post)

Pour ingredients into shaker filled with ice, strain into glass and enjoy!
