Bees Knees

Twist of Fate even created a special cocktail recipe just for this blog post! It's simple, sweet, and so delicious. Called the Bees Knees, it goes along with Twist of Fate's slogan for their Curbside Cocktails: when life gives you lemons, you're only a couple ingredients away from a pretty good cocktail. Enjoy!

  • 2 oz Good Quality Gin
  • 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon
  • 0.75 oz Honey Syrup * To make Honey syrup: Add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until blended, and let cool.


  • Combine all ingredients in a shaker, shake well. The honey syrup is thick, so make sure it's a good 15 seconds.
  • Strain into a coupe.
  • Feel free to add a fun garnish, and if you want to be creative with the honey syrup, feel free (lavender, rosemary, cardamom would all be fun additions, and there's lots more). 


Also, if you like bourbon, you can sub it in for gin and you've got a Gold Rush!
