The New Bee's Knees Cocktail Recipe

As I’ve shared in previous posts, I’m a big fan of all things lavender. And this amazing lavender cocktail recipe found on Bon Appetit (and appropriately named The New Bee’s Knees) is no exception. Incorporating dried lavender blossoms, honey, lemon juice and gin, it is all things floral, aromatic, and very, very yummy. XXJKE
