The Bee’s Knees

Bee's Knees

I was up late on Christmas Eve waiting for the little one to fall asleep so Santa could do his thing. While I was waiting, I shook up this cocktail. It’s a Prohibition-era cocktail, but it still holds it’s own today. I cannot remember where I got the recipe. A Google search brings up a bunch of different recipes and some cool historical facts about this libation.

The Bee’s Knees

2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce honey syrup (equal parts honey and hot water )

Shake ingredients together with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge or strip of lemon peel (or twist), if you would like.
