Tips on Bee's Knees
- Fresh lemon juice is important on this one. Squeezing 1 lemon should give you more than enough juice for this cocktail.
- Pick your favorite gin for this one. If you're new to gin, try a more neutral flavored gin like Beefeater or Aviation. My favorite in this cocktail is New Holland's Knickerbocker Gin, made right here in West Michigan. New Holland also makes a Blueberry Gin that creates a delicious variation for this cocktail.
- Be sure to make your honey syrup ahead of time so it has time to chill before you make your cocktail.
Enjoy your Bee's Knees with smoky, sweet bacon wrapped dates.
