Lavender Bee’s Knees

Sharing is caring!

Bitters give a cocktail that certain something, and in this Lavender Bee’s Knees they are the key ingredient. The addition of lavender bitters creates a delicious twist on a classic gin cocktail. Garnish with a sugar rim to make your cocktail extra special.

Makes 1 cocktail.

2 oz gin (I love New Holland’s Knickerbocker Gin)⁠
1 oz fresh lemon juice⁠
1 oz honey syrup
4 dashes lavender bitters (I use Scrappy’s)

Combine everything together in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. 

Shake well. 

Strain into a glass.

Enjoy! ⁠

Tips on Lavender Bee’s Knees 

  • Fresh lemon juice is a must in this drink.
  • Make the honey syrup ahead of time so it has lots of time to chill before you make your cocktail. 
  • Add a little sweetness with a sugar rim. Before you make your cocktail, run a lemon slice on the edge of your glass and dip the glass into a shallow plate of raw or colored sugar.

Snack Pairing
