Cocktail Party: Bee’s Knees

Bee’s Knees are typically associated with the summer, but we’ve deepened the flavor to stand up to a cold winter night with the addition of rosemary.

Bee’s Knees

2 parts gin
1 part flavored simple syrup
1 part lemon juice
Shake gin, simple syrup and lemon juice over ice and strain into coupe glasses.

Flavored simple syrup: Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil.  Reduce heat to a very low simmer and whisk in 1/2 cup of honey.  When the honey is dissolved, add 1 tbsp dried culinary grade organic lavender and four sprigs of fresh rosemary. Continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
