Bee’s Knees were one of the first cocktails I learned to make. They are so simple, delicious, and refreshing. 

But if you really want to take it up a notch this National Honey Bee Day, try one using the rich honey flavor of Barenjager! I honestly didn’t expect a whole lot of difference, but it really is so much better! It really lets the honey drive while the lemon and gin are riding shotgun. The original is always very lemon-heavy I’m my opinion, locking the honey back in the trunk!
