Have you had a Bee’s Knees cocktail before? It’s fresh, fun, and a lil fancy! I like to make these cocktails for special occasions because they’re a real crowd-pleaser, so Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show off those mixology skills and make this unique, signature drink for mom. And even though this Mother’s Day will be a little different for me now that I’m expecting, I’ll still be sipping on some fun mocktails for the celebration.
The Blossoming Bee’s Knees is crafted with some quality ingredients like SILKS Gin and Yes Way Rosé Bubbles. Both add distinctive flavors and depth to this original cocktail. Interested in seeing how I mixed these ingredients together to create one flavorful libation? Keep reading to find out!
The creators of SILKS Gin, Marie and Sally Anne Cooney are a beekeeping mother and daughter duo who did not have to look far for inspiration when developing the recipe for their gin. This spirit is distilled by hand in small copper still batches using a blend of 14 unique botanicals foraged from the family’s apple orchards.
This mixture of botanicals includes, but is not limited to apple blossom, honey, elderflower, and hawthorn blossom which are soaked and infused for 24 hours before slow distilling with vapor infusion. This distinct and traditional distillation process is what gives SILKS Gin its unique flavor.
P.S the name “Silks” is inspired by the colorful jockey silks worn at the historic Bellewstown racecourse, seen from the distillery.
