Lavender Bee’s Knees Cocktail

Gin and lemon go together like bees and honey! Our Bee’s Knees cocktail kit includes honey, lemon garnish and delicious lemon lavender bitters. Although this recipe is good with any botanical gin, we chose Empress 1908 for the amazing blue color (created from butterfly pea flowers). Bonus: try using a clear shaker and watch as the blue gin turns pink/ purple once the lemon is added! #science

Lavender Bee's Knees Recipe:

2 ounces gin (We used Empress 1908 to get that lovely color)

1/2 ounce honey simple syrup

1-2 droppers Lemon Lavender bitters

2 ounce fresh lemon juice

Lemon garnish

Directions for honey simple syrup:

Combine honey 1:1 with hot water. (Example: 1/2 C honey to 1/2 C water.) Stir until honey dissolves. Put in an airtight container and refrigerate. Keeps for two weeks.

Directions for cocktail:

Put gin, honey simple syrup, and lemon juice in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into martini glass. Add bitters. Garnish. Cheers!
