Bee’s Knees

The bee’s knees is an 1920’s American saying for something that is fantastic just like this smooth cocktail from the prohibition era .

50ml Gin (preferably a citrus based one )

25ml Lemon Juice

25ml Honey

Dash of hot water

Garnish

Lemon Twist

Pour all ingredients into shaker with ice, the hot water will help dissolve the honey, shake really hard, then double strain into coupe. 

Finally garnish with lemon twist. 

This is one of my new found favorites as it’s simple and easy to make as well as having that probation style and taste few cocktails have.
