Bee's Knees

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.
