A Graylyn Signature Cocktail: The Bee’s Knees

By on

This late-summer, early-fall cocktail was inspired by the prohibition era, during which the Graylyn Estate was built. It’s a little-known secret that there is a hidden beverage compartment in the Library, where the Gray’s frequently entertained.

In keeping with the Gray’s commitment to supporting local business, we set out to create a seasonal cocktail that stars a local spirit. Featuring Sutlers Gin and Golding Farms Honey, this beverage will refresh and delight any palate.
