Bee's Knees

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

This honey-sweetened Prohibition-era cocktail makes Lynnette Marrero think of spring: “It’s simple, clean and refreshing—like a winter toddy that’s gotten a spring makeover,” she says.

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces gin
  3. 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  4. 3/4 ounce honey syrup (1 tablespoon honey mixed with 1/2 tablespoon warm water)
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and honey syrup; shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe.
