My beloved friend asked me for a Bee´s Knees! Without her advice maybe perhaps after years I would stumbled over this awesome drink. One of the very few ones which is sweetened with honey defining the taste of this wonderful gin-oriented cocktail of the 1930s, long before the ascendancy of vodka. I myself added dashes of Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters to the recipe; give it a try, it balances the sweetness of the honey perfectly.
2 ounces Gin, 3/4 ounces Honey Syrup, 1/2 ounce Lemon Juice, 2 dashes of Bitter Truth Lemon Bitters, Lemon Peel
Shake the ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon peel.
