BEE’S KNEES

The expression “bee’s knees” was popular during the 1920s, meaning that something was the best. This cocktail was popular because it used bathtub gin, which was smoothed out with sweet honey and lemon juice.

Ingredients

  • 50ml gin
  • 10ml runny honey
  • 5ml water
  • 15ml fresh lemon juice
  • Ice cubes

Instructions

    Stir the honey into the water until dissolved to make a syrup. Pour into a cocktail shaker with the gin, lemon juice and a couple of ice cubes. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass of your choice.
