It’s “awesome,” it’s “lit,” it’s “the Bee’s Knees”! I’m sure even your grandpa wouldn’t be able to tell you what the knee of a bee has to do with something being great. Do bees even have knees? Anyway, I still find myself using the expression every now and then, albeit satirically but still.
The Bee’s Knees is a prohibition-era cocktail that smells lovely and tastes sweet. You’ll need your shaker, a jigger, a Hawthorne strainer, and a fine mesh strainer for this one so bust out the ole’ cocktail kit. So let’s get right into this Bee’s Knees Cocktail Recipe.
Some Things To Note
Honey is wonderful in drinks, but at full strength, it is difficult to use. A practical way of preparing honey for use in drinks is to turn it into a thinner syrup, similar to simple syrup. To do so, combine 1 part honey with 1 part warm water and stir until all the honey is dissolved. Store in the fridge for 2 weeks. We recommend this method when making this Bee’s Knees Cocktail Recipe.
When choosing which gin to use, we at Cocktail Hammer are particularly fond of using Plymouth Gin as the base spirit. Click here to get your Plymouth gin ASAP.
