About this Ginger Bee's Knees gin cocktail: a classic from the Prohibition era, the Bee’s Knees (old school slang for the Best of the Best) was invented in Paris as a riff on the standard Gin Sour’s gin + lemon, with honey instead of sugar. The tradition of adaptation continues here with delicious infused notes of ginger and elderflower. Beeeelightful.
