#SunshineSpotlight: Palm Valley Bee's Knees Cocktail

#SunshineSpotlight: Palm Valley Bee's Knees Cocktail

We’re spreading a little sunshine with our #SunshineSpotlight. Sharing our favorite cities all across Florida. Starting with our hometown and headquarters of Cabana Life, Palm Valley in Ponte Vedra, FL. 

Inspired by our latest print & locale we’ve found a cocktail as bright as Florida Sunshine: the Bee's Knees! Following MixologyU’s recipe, we’ve combined this refreshing sip with local honey for a little taste of home. When making the honey syrup we highly recommend using local Honey form Bee Friends Farm! This will make sure you’re getting 100% real honey, without any fillers or substitutes, plus their iconic light gold Orange Blossom honey is sweet & has lovely floral aromas.


Honey Syrup:

1 cup Local Honey

1 Cup Water


2 oz Dry Gin

3/4 oz Lemon Juice

1/2 oz Honey Syrup


  1. Bring a saucepan of equal parts honey and water to a boil, then leave to simmer until the honey has dissolved, stirring regularly. Once the mixture is consistent, leave to cool & then refrigerate. This will keep for up to a month & is great for other cocktail mixes too! 
  2. Take 2 ounces dry gin, ¾ ounce lemon juice, and ½ ounce honey syrup to your cocktail shaker.
  3. Fill with ice and shake! Strain ice & serve in a chilled coupe glass with a lemon twist garnish.
