Lavender Bee’s Knees

  • Author: Patricia Beets
  • Yield: 2 Drinks 1x


This is a drink for gin lovers and gin haters alike. (Really.) The crowing touch: the lavender honey syrup. Simple to make, it’s the ingredient that adds a modern touch to this classic Art Deco cocktail.



  • 4 Oz Gin
  • 2 Oz Lavender Honey Syrup
  • 2 Oz Lemon Juice
  • Ice
  • Lavender sprigs for garnish
  • Dell Cove Spices & More’s Lavender flavored Cocktail Rim Sugar


To Make Lavender Honey Syrup:


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/8 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon dried culinary lavender buds


Add hot water into a bowl, then add your lavender buds. Whisk in the honey and keep whisking until evenly mixed. Let cool and allow the mixture to steep overnight (to really bring out the floral notes). The next day, pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the lavender bits from your honey syrup. Don’t be in a rush on this step – it can take a bit for the syrup to be strained.

Drink Directions:

Rim your coupe cocktail glasses with our Lavender flavored Cocktail Rim Sugar and set aside. Combine all of your cocktail drink ingredients in a cocktail shaker full of ice. Cover shaker and shake vigorously until shaker is chilled. Strain into cocktail glasses. Garnish with lavender spring and serve.

Bar supplies:

  • Champagne coupe glasses (chilled)
  • Cocktail shaker
  • Dell Cove Spices’ Lavender flavored Cocktail Rim Sugar

Speaking of Art Deco-inspired drinks, we get asked A LOT about where we get our glassware. Short answer: it depends. Some of it has been passed down through our families, while some has been discovered at vintage shops during our travels out to visit different farms. (You can find vintage glassware treasures at estate sales, too!) Our collection is a bit big. But honestly? We use them. There’s something wonderful about serving a cocktail in vintage glass that makes even a casual mid-week meal feel special.
