The Bee's Knees is a Prohibition-era cocktail that makes one small tweak to the classic gin sour: it replaces sugar with honey syrup, creating a richer drink with more depth.
The phrase "bee's knees" was a colloquial saying of the times, meaning something outstanding—an accurate assessment of the cocktail if you ask us! And this non-alcoholic Bee's Knees variation is even better, adding our Lavender Chamomile bitters for a nice floral lift.
