Balance is always strived for in cocktails. Therefore, a honey based cocktail is something that has the sound of the sickly sweet. The Bee's Knees, however, is a wonderful combination, bringing orange, lemon, honey and our delightful Garden Tiger gin, into a harmonious whole.
We recommend playing with the honey in this recipe. Lightly flavoured acacia or orange blossom honeys bring with them a very different result to powerful chestnut and ling heather honeys. Whether light or rich and smokey, the result is fantastic:
- 50ml Garden Tiger dry gin
- 15ml Honey
- 25ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 25ml Freshly squeezed orange juice
- A strip of orange zest
Add all of the ingredients, excluding the orange zest, to a cocktail shaker. Stir until the honey is well combined and fill the shaker with ice. Shake until the shaker is well coated in condensation and double strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with the strip of orange zest.
