#DrinkNY: The Bees Knees

#NYSOM Happy Hour: We believe in celebrating, and have a tradition of ending each work week with a New York State-inspired cocktail. Here's our guide to mixing and sipping The Bees Knees.

"The Bees Knees"

The Bees Knees aperitif is inspired by Catskill Provisions, from the NYSOM Marketplace. They developed the Bees Knees cocktail from their very own Fall Wildflower Honey, tempered with hot water and shaken with quality gin. Serve in a Tom Stoenner Cocktail Glass for the ultimate New York experience. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Gin. (We recommend Hudson Valley’s own Warwick Rustic Gin for its citrusy flavor.)
  • 1 oz warm water
  • 1 TBSP wildflower honey
  • Juice of ½ lemon
Directions: Add honey to warm water and stir until melted into a golden liquid. Fill a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Add gin, lemon juice and honey water, and shake vigorously. Pour into your cocktail glass and garnish with a twist or slice of lemon.
