Summer Strawberry and Rhubarb Bees Knees Cocktail

For those of you that know me well, you know my love for Collective Arts. Once they started getting into the distilling game, it was a no-brainer for me to support and we came together to bring you a few instructional cocktail videos! Today, I’m showcasing a riff on the classic gin Bees Knees cocktail but with a seasonal twist. Strawberry season is almost over here, so I wanted to take full advantage of this one!

If you’re looking for the recipe with all the details, look no further. Or if you’re a visual learner, make sure to watch our quick video here.

To make the Honey Syrup at home, it’s really simple. Pour 2 parts of Honey and stir in 1 cup of boiled water. For example, pour 1/2 cup of Honey with 1/4 cup of boiled water and give this a stir until combined. Let it sit at room temperature before use and this can last up to 2 weeks in the fridge!
