The Bee’s Freeze

Ingredients

  1. 2 oz Barr Hill Gin
  2. 1.5 oz Raw Honey Syrup (2 parts raw honey : 1 part warm water)
  3. 1.5 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  4. 1 cup Ice

Directions

Blend all together and enjoy.

We use a little more lemon juice and honey syrup than a regular Bee’s Knees for this to create a smoother consistency and better balance of flavor in the frozen version.

For bonus points, try adding a few of your favorite fresh, seasonal berries into the blender, too!

Barr Hill Gin Bee's Freeze


Our Story

Here, at Barr Hill, we make a spirit unlike all others. A gin made with the wisdom of the wild. Not just a handcrafted gin, a truly Landcrafted gin. We leave the botanicals to those who know them best: the bees. Traveling miles of meadows in search of the noblest nectar, they create a golden elixir bursting with the essence of endless flowered hillsides. Marrying their raw, untouched honey with the beauty of juniper, our distillers craft an award-winning gin as distinct as the place where it’s from. Open a bottle and smell the fragrance of our fields. Pour a glass and sense the purity of purpose. Take a sip and know that—no matter where you are —this is Barr Hill. 
Welcome and Enjoy.
