The Bees Knees

The Bees Knees

A timeless classic, the Bees Knees is delightfully sweet with the delicate richness of honey and a touch of citrus, making it simply delicious!



50ml Mirari Amber Gin

20ml lemon juice

20ml orange juice

2tspl honey 

Citrus twist to garnish



  1. Add Mirari Gin and Honey into a cocktail shaker and stir well to dissolve the honey.
  2. Add the lemon and orange juice, top the shaker with ice.
  3. Shake well.
  4. Strain into a martini glass or coupe. 
  5. Garnish with citrus zest.


- You can use any of our gins if our Amber isn't within reach.

- Runny, raw honey is best!

- For a variation, and a "longer drink" add ice and top with lemonade or tonic water.

- Freshly squeezed juice is a winner and if you don't have orange juice, use more lemon juice instead.

- If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a jam jar with a lid.

- If you don't have a strainer, you can pour the drink over the rocks, the drink will be a bit more diluted and a little less sweet.
