Bee's Knees

The Bee's Knees cocktail is a timeless classic with roots dating back to the Prohibition era, a time when innovative mixology emerged in response to the restrictions of the time.

The combination of gin with honey syrup and freshly squeezed lemon juice results in a well-balanced and invigorating cocktail that marries the botanical depth of gin with the natural sweetness of honey, all brightened by the citrusy tang of lemon.

Served straight up in a chilled cocktail glass, the Bee's Knees is a crisp and refreshing sip with a touch of sophistication, making it a go-to choice for those who appreciate the marriage of sweet, sour, and herbal notes in a single, iconic drink.

This cocktail not only delights the taste buds but also offers a historical glimpse into the inventive spirit of the Prohibition era.
