Bee’s Knees Cocktail

  • Author: Bartender Tamir Ben-Shalom
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


Here’s a drink that features Earl Flewellen’s honey. In midsummer, when Ben-Shalom noticed that the honey was rich with rum-like qualities, he tried swapping the gin for rum in this recipe and served it as the Bumble Bee.


  • 2 ounces Martin Miller Westbourne Strength Gin
  • 1 ounce E.G. Flewellen’s Port Costa wildflower honey syrup*
  • .75 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 twist of lemon peel


Shake and strain into a stemmed cocktail glass of your choice. Garnish with the lemon twist.

*To make honey syrup: measure equal parts by volume of room temperature filtered water with wildflower honey. If you use tap water, boil first and let it cool to room temperature.
