Bees Knees

I am now posting a third mezcal cocktail of the summer. Paloma slushies, our house margarita and now this perfect little number, the Bees Knees. If it wasn't already obvious, Mezcal is my spirit of choice.

This one is fantastic year-round and ticks all the right boxes.

BEES KNEES

2 oz mezcal

1 oz honey syrup (recipe below)

Juice of one lemon

Shake and pour over ice (I like these big cube molds for this)

HONEY SIMPLE SYRUP

1/2 cup medium hot (not boiling) water

1/2 cup honey

Whisk together until honey dissolves and then allow to cool before storing in the fridge. I like these swing top bottles for this.
