This creation is a riff on the classic honey-sweetened cocktail that dates back to the 1920s, which was also Prohibition era in the United States. The original cocktail was a simple gin sour riff, with only three ingredients – for this fall & winter we’re making it even more seasonal, combining that warm honey with refreshing apple cider to make a great cocktail full of fall fruit & warming winter honey.
If you don’t feel like making your own at home, stop by the distillery this week to pick up an Apple Bee’s Knees cocktail kit, or a classic Bee’s Knees cocktail as one of our ready-to-drink cocktails to go!
