“The original purpose of honey in this simple Prohibition Era cocktail was to mask the smell of the bathtub gin. Now you can enjoy it without having to hide a thing.”

LOVE Bee's Knees! I had it in a 1920s throwback bar in Boston and fell in love. Thanks for the recipe! It tasted exactly right! The honey syrup is easy to make, make sure you mix it up until the honey dissolves. I made the mistake of thinking I could just squeeze honey in with the gin, but it made a goopy ball. Delicious recipe!
