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.⁣
