The Bees Knees cocktail.

With limited liquor courtesy of Prohibition, bartenders were forced to not only make alcohol taste good enough to drink, but they had to somehow mask the spirits they were using to avoid getting arrested. Fortunately, there’s one cocktail that’s just so sinfully sweet that it can easily make anyone get up and do the Charleston. The Bee’s Knees, named after a popular flapper phrase, is like indulging in golden honey, except it happens to be spiked with good ol’ gin. Be the cat’s pajamas at any bash with one of the coolest cocktails around, courtesy of mixologist Ryan Maerz from New York City-based event planning company Canard.

Directions

Shake with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and serve straight up. Garnish with a very small triangle of honeycomb.
