The Bee’s Knees Cocktail

The Bee’s Knees is a classic cocktail based off a gin sour and one of my favorites to serve guests at summer gatherings; it’s refreshing, balanced, and beautiful in the glass. My version adjusts the recipe slightly with a bit of additional depth from the Lillet.

Note: This cocktail is the perfect way to use your homemade honey syrup – ideally with honey from your own hives!
