This take on the Bee's Knees cocktail has a stronger honey presence than the classic. Our River Road Farm honey is really mild; it's delicate enough that it won't overpower the other flavors in the drink. The goat rocks glass pictured can be purchased here.
River Road Farm Bee's Knees
1.5 oz gin
1.5 oz honey syrup (recipe HERE )
.75 oz lemon juice
extra honey for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a stirring glass and stir until chilled.
Pour over ice in a rocks glass.
Garnish with a honey dipper dipped in honey. If you dip the dipper in the cold drink it will make a sticky honey candy, or you can enjoy alongside the drink. The point is to get honey on the rim of the glass, so if you don't have a dipper just roll the rocks glass rim in honey before making the cocktail!
