Queen Bey

Happy Bee’s Knees week!

This is my submission for @homebarawards September competition. Them along with @barrhillgin and @licensed_to_distill have teamed up to save the bees by planting 10 sq. ft. bee pollinator habitats for every Bee’s Knees post.

This riff was inspired by @beyonce

I used a blueberry syrup in conjunction with honey syrup, because of her 1st daughter, Blue Ivy. Unfortunately, I don’t have Barnhill gin, but I do have a gin made in Texas. So I infused butterfly pea into the gin because purple signifies royalty. Enjoy!


  • 2oz Butterfly pea infused gin @waterloogin
  • 1oz – 1.50oz Freshly pressed lemon juice (to taste)
  • .5oz Scratch made Honey simple syrup
  • .5oz Blueberry simple syrup @royalroseme
  • Layered over a @truecubes ice cube

Quick story: I got to bartend at Jay-Z & BeyoncĂ©’s concert for their On The Run Tour when they were here in Orlando. I was at the pits where people paid $$$ to be there. Oh, and @beyonce made eye contact with me! Their concert was so dope!


  • mix both honey and blueberry syrups together. Pour into serving glass.
  • Put your ice cube into the serving glass.
  • Layer the lemon juice over the ice.
  • Layer the butterfly pea infused gin over the lemon juice with the back of a bar spoon.
  • Take a quick pic.
  • Stir and enjoy!
