Cocktail of the Week: Bless the Bees

Lavender is an iconic scent and flavor of summer. So naturally, Queen Bee had to mark the season by mixing some up in a cocktail! Bless the Bees is a sweet and subtly tart libation that will be the perfect addition to your next summertime happy hour.


  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 0.5 oz. elderflower liqueur
  • 0.5 oz. lavender syrup
  • 0.5 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 egg white


  1. Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and top with ice.
  2. Shake until chilled.
  3. Strain shaker ingredients to remove ice and do a dry shake.
  4. Pour into a glass and garnish with a lemon.

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.
