Bee's Knees

A classic Prohibition-era cocktail, the Bee's Knees is named in the vernacular of the era with a phrase meaning basically "awesome." (If there was an Urban Dictionary in the 1920s, they would confirm.) It's a variation of the classic Gin Sour, using honey instead of sugar, shown here with a garnish of dried Meyer Lemon. The recipe is attributed to Frank Meier, a bartender at the Hôtel Ritz Paris. 


2 oz London Dry Gin

1 oz Lemon Juice

¾ oz Honey Syrup


Shake/Strain into Coupe. Garnish with Lemon Twist.
