Bee’s Knees


The Bee’s Knees is a Prohibition era cocktail that is also fun and easy to make.  It’s as easy as mixing lemon juice, honey and gin but you can experiment with this cocktail by using different types of gins.  So American gin would have a different taste than Bee’s Knees with London dry gin.   This cocktail recipe is from mixologist Jamie Oliver.





  • 2 ounces of Beefeater Gin
  • 1/2 ounce Honey syrup (one part honey, one part water)
  • 3/4 ounce of lemon juice

How to prepare The Bee’s Knees cocktail:

Chill a cocktail glass.  Pour the ingredients in to a cocktail shaker that is filled with ice.  Shake well and strain it into a glass.  You can garnish it with lemon twist.
