The Bee’s KneesPosted: December 25, 2014
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.
