This drink originated in the Prohibition Era, as far back as the early 1920’s… It’s name comes from a slang term from the same era that the flappers used to describe something of the utmost excellence… and ladies which one of us doesn’t think we are the bees knees!
Now I’m not a gin drinker at all, but this truly is the bees knees when it comes to a drink with gin in it. It’s simple, only has 3 ingredients and who knew they could taste so good together!
Get ready to get your buzz on.
