The Friday Cocktail — The Bees Knees

The Bees Knees

You made it to the end of the week and now it’s time to drink! We’re highlighting a new cocktail each Friday so we can all enjoy a little something special to kick off our weekend.

This week’s Friday cocktail is The Bees Knees and may be the ultimate prohibition-era cocktail. Unlike many drinks from the speakeasy era, the bee’s knees is dead simple.

The drink itself is lemony fresh, followed by bright and sweet honey on the body, before ending with a prominent gin finish.

Here is what you’ll need to make The Bees Knees
