Clementine Bees Knees
Updated: Sep 18, 2021
This gin classic was a hit in Essex at a special
Highclere Castle Gin Tasting. The experts at The Griswold Inn have crafted their own version that is delightful.
2 oz Highclere Castle gin
3/4 oz lemon Juice (some prefer 1 oz)
3/4 oz honey syrup (some prefer a .5 oz)
1/2 oz Fruitful Mixology Clementine Liqueur
Note: Some add 3/4 oz of orange juice to the original recipe, and that is how this version was conceived
I have found that the 2:1 ratio of honey syrup is very prone to spoilage and can make cocktails less bold. Each honey is different, to be sure; but I have had much success with a 1.5:1 ratio. Using a digital scale will yield the most consistent results.
