The Bee's Knees Cocktail

This wonderful cocktail recipe is appropriated from

I can count on one hand the amount of times that men and women alike have willingly discussed the same topic in poplar culture. Most often, this is because men are fascinated when honored athletes are caught using performance enhancement drugs and women are concerned with plastic surgeries, break-ups, and betrayals. However, once in a blue moon, Venus and Mars align to discuss the scandals of popular culture...together. That being said, the new Great Gatsby film directed by Baz Luhrmann is one of them. En lieu of F. Scott Fitzgerlad's wondrous novel and portrayal of the 1920's era during the prohibition, why not toast to its honor with a fancy cocktail? This Bee's Knees Cocktail is crisp, clean, and oh so "Gatsby". Set the scene at your next spring party with the "Bee's Knees Cocktail", Roaring Twenties attire, and songs by Jay-Z and Andre 3000 playing softly in the distance.



  • 2 oz Bar Hill Gin
  • 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz Cloister Honey: Vanilla Infused, simple syrup 1:1
  • Garnish with a lemon twist
