This refreshing gin cocktail takes the classic Bee’s Knees to a new level of sophistication with fresh lavender floral notes and Snooze. This cocktail will get you buzzing!
The Bee’s Knees cocktail is as old as prohibition. It’s basically a gin sour but with added sweetness from the honey. The addition of lavender and Snooze cuts the sweetness a bit and adds an herbal, earthy flavor to this well-balanced sipper.
Lemon and lavender go together so well, and when mixed with Rongoāvis Snooze CBD you’ll want to make this one as often as possible. A great cocktail for relaxing on the back porch all season long.
