Another classic, and one that would never make Winnie the Pooh say, ‘oh, bother!’ This drink is very aptly named – a little bit of honey, some lemon juice, and gin make a deliciously dangerous and refreshing cocktail. You’ll need:
- Gin (Pick your favorite, whether it’s classic, super cheap, or aged. This cocktail has very flavorful ingredients precisely to mask the flavors of Prohibition-era bathtub gin)
- Lemon Juice (fresh squeezed is great, but bottled lemon juice works just as well)
- Honey syrup (another easy one to make! Just mix up honey with an equal part of hot water and stir until incorporated)
This one’s gonna need a good shake for ice crystals and dilution, so grab something you can shake in – maybe a cocktail shaker, but maybe you’ve got a mason jar, a tight-lidded Tupperware, or even a travel coffee mug! Something to strain the drink into a fresh glass would help too, but the Bees Knees tastes just fine on ice as well.
