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. Run a slice of lemon around part or all of the rim of your glass, then dip it into a shallow dish filled with sugar. I used colored sugar in the photos here, but that's entirely up to you!

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.
