Smoked Bee's Knees

Thanks @r0samim0sa for sharing your Smoked Bee’s Knees⁣ cocktail!


  • 2 oz London dry gin⁣
  • 3/4 oz honey syrup⁣
  • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice ⁣
  • lemon twist⁣
  • wood chips and glass dome


Add the honey syrup and lemon juice to a glass, stir well to combine and place on a smoking board. Place lemon twist garnish that you’ll use at the end next to the glass.⁣ Light the chips until they begin to smoke and cover with the dome. Let sit for about five minutes to allow the syrup to absorb all the smoke flavor. After about five minutes, pour the lemon and honey mixture into a cocktail shaker and add gin. Top with large, cubed ice and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled, coupe glass and garnish with the lemon twist from the smoker.⁣
