The Bee’s Knees cocktail is a drink that dates back to prohibition, when the phrase “the bee’s knees” was a commonly used expression of appreciation. The drink consists of gin that is sweetened with honey – or honey syrup, in this case – and lemon juice. The honey and lemon take the edge off of the gin and make this sweet drink easy to sip
2 oz. Gin
3/4 oz. Honey Syrup
1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker and fill with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
