You’ll find the bees knees is similar to the gin fix or other sours but the honey gives it a new texture and flavor that’s a bit more dynamic and aromatic. Especially if you’re using different styles of honey.

Because the gin in the bees knees is your primary component and the drink is a 3-combination simple cocktail you’ll find slight variations of honey styles will change the flavor dynamic.

Another great drink and video! BTW – Death’s Door is made in Middleton Wisconsin, not Michigan. I love their gin – it’s a great balance of American and London Dry styles.

This and the penicillin are great when I have a cold/flu help sooth the throat and get a good dose of vitamin C. Changing the honey type changes the flavour. For my taste wild flower is best.

I used citric acid with it as well gave it an- extra kick!
