D's Bees, our take on a Bees' Knees, is a cocktail composed of gin, lemon and honey that dates back to prohibition. The phrase “bee’s knees” was prohibition-era slang for “the best.” In that time, the addition of ingredients such as citrus and honey were often used to cover the less than ideal smell and taste of bathtub gin. Improving the taste of an inferior gin may have been the goal, but the result was a fantastic concoction that can hold its own today.

We use Oppidan Spirits American Botanical Gin, fresh raw honey from Heritage Prairie Farm and freshly squeezed lemon juice served with a demitasse spoon of honeycomb from Bron's Bee Company.
