Interesting facts

The Bees Knees cocktail is made with gin, honey, and lemon juice. Gin was one of the most popular liquors during the Prohibition era. Honey was used as a way to sweeten the drink and mask the taste of the alcohol. Lemon juice was used to add tartness and balance out the sweetness from the honey.

History of the drink

For a great many years it was believed that the Bee's Knees oriGinated in America during Prohibition, when it was reported that the cocktail's Lemon juice and honey concealed the subpar Gin. The drink can now be credited to Mrs. J.J. Brown of Denver and Paris thanks to cocktail expert Jared Brownan. The Standard Union from Brooklyn, New York published an article about the then-current trend of women's-only bars in Paris, France on April 22, 1929. According to this story, the genuine oriGins of this drink appeared at an American millionaire's party in Paris.
