Bees Knees Cocktail


  • 50ml Gin
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 20ml fresh lemon juice
  • 20ml fresh orange juice
  • Mint leaf to garnish


  • Add gin and honey to a shaker and stir until the honey dissolves. Add the lemon and orange juice and top up with ice. Shake well.
  • Strain into a martini glass.
  • Garnish with a sprig of mint.
  • As an alternative, try pouring the cocktail on the rocks – it’s not quite the same but it’s perfect for the occasions where either you (or a guest) wants a touch more dilution as the ice helps break up the sweetness and allows the cocktail to loosen up a little.
