The Bee’s Knees

The Bee’s Knees

A Classic Cocktail with a New Twist

This creative, simple recipe harnesses the purest lavender honey to make a perfect cool drink for a spring or summer evening.  And the additional possibilites for lavender honey syrup, which could sweeten or enhance any number of dishes or drinks, seem almost endless... 


  • 1 oz L'Abeille Occitane Lavender Honey
  • 1/2 oz hot water
  • 2 oz gin of your choice (we like Rehorst)
  • 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • lavender sprigs for garnish

1. Mix the honey and hot water to make Lavender Honey Syrup.

2. Fill a cocktail shaker full of ice; add gin, lemon juice, and 3/4 oz honey syrup. Shake vigorously for ten seconds.

3. Strain into a chilled martini glass, garnish with lavender sprigs, and enjoy!
