Bees Knees CocktailServes:
This prohibition era cocktail only needs one spirit - gin, to make a delicious tipple. It has a sweet sour flavour profile and makes a great pre dinner drink, another bonus of the Bees Knees - it's sweetened with honey, so you don't need to make a simple syrup, great when you are away at the bach, boat or campground.
- 2 tsp honey - or more to your taste
- 20ml lemon juice
- 60ml gin
- 1/2 cup ice
Place honey, lemon juice and gin in a shaker and stir well until honey is completely dispersed.
Add ice and shake well, strain into a small chilled glass and serve with a twist of lemon zest.
If the honey isn't thoroughly mixed before adding the ice it will harden and clump together and instead of sweetening the drink it will stick in the shaker.
