Bee's Knees: A Classic Gin Cocktail

This cocktail is aptly's truly "the bee's knees"...the "cat's pajamas" if you will....

They say the memory is the first to go. I could swear that I had posted a gin-based cocktail made with honey before...turns out it was rum and Champagne. This one. But since I already had my taste buds set on gin, I Googled and found this one. It's sweet, tangy and herbal all at once.

The Bee's Knees

2 ounces gin
3/4 ounce honey syrup (equal parts honey and warm water)
1/2 ounce lemon juice

Shake all the ingredients in an ice-filled shaker and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
