Bee’s Knees Cocktail Recipe
Bee’s Knees was originally created during the Prohibition era and served straight up with the intent to cover the imperfect taste and smell of bathtub gin. Now many years later, South Hollow Spirits’ Dry Line Gin puts a craft twist on the cocktail using honey sourced from Truro honey purveyor, Longnook Meadows Farm.
2.00 oz Dry Line Cape Cod Gin
1.00 oz Longnook Farms Honey simple syrup
1.00 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
Bette Jane's Original Club soda
To make the honey simple syrup, combine equal parts water and honey in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until mixture is combined and then let cool before using in cocktail.
For the cocktail fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add Dry Line Gin, honey simple syrup and lemon juice. Shake well and strain into Collins glass over ice. Top with club soda.
