Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail – Bee's Knees

Welcome the Weekend with a Prohibition Happy Hour Cocktail

You have worked hard all week, now it is time to let loose a bit with a Bee's Knees!

This week's Speakeasy Inspire Happy Hour drink is named after the popular 1920s phrase "Bee's Knees." Meaning, "the best," this cocktail at the time helped to mask the harsh flavor and smell of bootleg bathtub gin. Gin has significantly improved since the 20s and this cocktail is still a celebrated classic enjoyed today.

Try Making the Bee's Knees Yourself:

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce honey simple syrup
