This light American honey cocktail cleverly entitled Bee's Knees receives a fragrant update with the addition of fresh sage and an infused honey syrup to create a boozy beverage that is ideal for sunny dates and sweet desserts.
The drink is simple to make and requires very minimal skill in bartending to put together. The beverage begins with a homemade honey simple syrup that can be prepped and kept days ahead of time. The honey syrup is mixed along with gin, fresh sage leaves, lemon juice in a cocktail shaker before being strained over ice and served with more fresh sage as a garnish. Because of the light sweetness of the drink, this cocktail can pair well with desserts as well as meals that feature honey to complement the flavors.
