- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1/2 jigger gin
- 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
Note: The orange juice is optional. Bars in Los Angeles and New York that serve the Bee’s Knees omit it.
Combine all the ingredients and shake well with ice. Strain into a glass.
Note: When made as directed, the honey often forms into a giant ball in the middle of the shaker. To avoid this, combine three parts honey to one part hot water and stir together until completely mixed, then continue with the recipe.
