Bee's Knees


The Bee's Knees is an incredibly versatile cocktail that is equally at home in a speakeasy or a modern cocktail bar. It's perfect for anyone who wants to explore the world of classic cocktails.

The Bee's Knees is a classic drink that rose to prominence during the Prohibition era in the United States, which lasted from 1920 to 1933. The name "Bee's Knees" is thought to have originated from the slang of the Roaring Twenties. At that time, expressions such as "the cat's pajamas" and "the bee's knees" were popular to describe something outstanding or great. Thus, the Bee's Knees cocktail was named to convey its delicious qualities.


While there are variations of the Bee's Knees that use other spirits, gin is the classic base for this cocktail. Its botanicals perfectly complement the honey and lemon juice to create a balanced flavor. And this is how you prepare the Bee's Knees:

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
