Sugar-Free, Low Carb Cocktail: The Bee’s Knees

The weekend calls for some relaxation and indulgence, and what better way to kick it off than with a classic drink made into a low carb cocktail? But for those of us watching our carb intake, traditional recipes can pose a challenge. Fear not, because today, we’re bringing you a delightful low carb twist on the iconic Bee’s Knees cocktail. Say goodbye to sugar-laden mixers and hello to a refreshing, tangy, and guilt-free libation that will have you sipping in style.

To craft this low carb Bee’s Knees cocktail, we need to start with a key ingredient: the honey simple syrup. Unlike traditional recipes that rely on sugary honey, we opt for a smarter, healthier choice. Prepare your honey simple syrup by mixing equal parts of your favorite sugar-free honey substitute and water. We recommend using products like ChocZero Sugar-Free Honey Substitute, but there are several options available in the market. Combine them, shake well, and store in your fridge for up to three weeks. This syrup will sweeten our cocktail while keeping those carb counts low.
