The Bee's Knees

This is a  gin cocktail from the Prohibition era and it's not for the faint hearted!  The honey was added to mask the smell of liquor (should we thank Prohibition for the evolution of the cocktail?). One of these will have you Charlestoning on the table, but who ever said that was a bad thing? 

Bee's Knees Cocktail
  • 2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz honey*
Shake vigorously in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a curled lemon rind.
*substitute honey syrup for easier mixing; made by mixing equal parts honey and warm water
