A Bees Knees is a Prohibition Era cocktail made with gin, fresh lemon juice, and honey. The name comes from the era's slang meaning 'the best', and it is! This cocktail so simple to make and super refreshing. We made this with Berry Bros & Rudd No.3 London Dry Gin. So far, No.3 has been named the world’s best gin four times at the International Spirits Challenge and matches perfectly with our London Honey.
25ml London Dry Gin
3 tsp London Honey
1 small lemon
Add gin and honey to a shaker and stir with a spoon until the honey dissolves. Add juice of a whole lemon and and top up with ice. Shake well. Strain into a glass. Garnish with lemon zest.
And that's all she wrote. Something to enjoy over the weekend!
