"Bees Knees" to Bring You to Your Knees

Spoke Friday has been a tradition going back since we opened in 2008.

The partners were meeting so many people that we worried about following up with everyone.  So we decided, why not host a happy hour and bring everyone to us.  We held happy hours every 2 weeks in 2008.  But then we realized that drinking that much would land us all on a 12 step program.  We went to monthly for a long time and have now settled on “themed” Spoke Fridays a few times a year.

We also feature a cocktail at these events and wanted to start sharing the recipes with you.

The first shared recipe is called “Bees Knees”.  There are lots of variations but I found this one at Earl’s in Whistler Canada.

2 parts Gin (I use Hendrix but any smooth gin will do)

1 part Cointreau (this is the ingredient that separates this from other recipes)

1 part honey (be sure to dissolve with some water first)

1 part fresh lemon juice (don’t skip on fresh juice)

Garnish with lemon peel

Beware… three of these will bring you to your knees. A perfect drink for over the Thanksgiving holiday to help make it through family engagements!

Is it Dan’s years of sales experience that makes him obsess about empowering our clients’ sales team with the right tool at the right time during the buyer’s journey? Is it his experience running marketing departments that compels him to find the tactics that have the highest possible return on investment? Is it his fascination with all-things-technological that drives our ability to deliver hyper-targeted (and super-effective) and perfectly timed messages? We may never know; we’re just glad he still has time to focus on our business, too.
