Sesame Bee’s Knees

An elevated 🐝 Bees’s Knees 🐝 with lemon oleo saccahrum and toasted sesame infused honey simple.  Life tastes good.


3oz St. George’s Terroir Gin — 1 1/2oz Fresh Lemon Juice — 1 oz *Toasted Sesame infused Honey Simple  — 1 scant tbs *lemon oleo saccharum 

*Lightly toast whole sesame seeds in small pan on low heat until light brown in color.  Grind sesame seeds with mortar and pestle or coffee grinder (I used the former).   Heat equal parts honey and water until liquid consistency.  Remove from heat and add ground sesame seeds – allow to steep at least 20min (adjust time to taste).

*Peel 2-3 lemons, try to get as little pith (white part inside peel) as possible.  Place peels in sealable zip loc bag and add 1/3 of sugar.  Allow to sit for at least 2 hours, allowing the sugar to extract the fragrant, delicious oil from the lemon peel.  Use a tablespoon to extract the oleo saccharum (oil sugar) from zip loc – OR – poke a small hole in the corner of bag and squeeze out.

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled glass. Yum!
