This is truly the “Bees Knees” refreshing for sure!
The Bee’s Knees cocktail is comprised of gin, honey and lemon. The post prohibition cocktail definitely holds true to it’s meaning it is really one of the “best” gin cocktails I’ve had. During this time in history everyone was making “bathtub gin” which in order to improve the taste they would use citrus and in this case honey to mask the taste. You can alter the flavor just by using different gin and different flavored honey.

Make the honey water with 2 parts honey to 1 part hot water and stir. ( this dissolves the honey and makes it easier to mix in your cold drinks)
Add all ingredients to shaker with ice, shake, pour and serve up. For a more refreshing version pour over ice and top with soda water.
