Lemon Tree’s Bee’s Knees


Created for the Lemon Tree Café & Bistro who asked us to come with a signature cocktail, this is a variation of a classic Bee’s Knees.

50ml Sir Robin of Locksley® Gin
15ml Fresh Lemon Juice
25ml Honey Syrup (equal parts mild honey & hot water)
Sprig of Fresh Rosemary

Muddle the Rosemary and Honey Syrup. Add the Sir Robin of Locksley® Gin and Lemon Juice. Shake with ice and double strain into a chilled martini glass.

Dip half the rim in Lemon sugar. Garnish with a Lemon Twist and Rosemary.

A French 75 version is easy to adapt… serve in a flute and top with Champagne or Prosecco.

You can also make a long drink by adding soda, or a play on a Ramos Fizz by adding egg white to the initial cocktail. The latter needs to be dry shaken.
