Honeybee Sour — A Version of the Bee’s Knees Gin Cocktail
Posted On March 15, 2021
This is basically a fancified Bees Knees cocktail. I’m calling it, “Honeybee Sour.” We used grapefruit gin, lemon juice, almond extract, honey, an egg white and some club soda. This would have been great with some thyme or rosemary as a garnish but I didn’t think of it in time. There’s always tomorrow!
For two: Grapefruit gin (click here for one we love) Juice of a whole lemon About two tablespoons honey 1 tsp. almond extract 1 egg white Shake all of the above ingredients with a couple cubes of ice. Pour into glasses like these and top off with club soda. Enjoy!
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
