The Bee’s Knees

2 ounces (1/4 cup) gin
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) honey syrup

Combine gin, lemon juice, and the honey syrup in a cocktail shaker. Stir to dissolve the syrup. Fill the shaker with ice and stir for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve. If you like, you may add an ice cube or two – drinks get warm awfully fast in the summer, and there’s something gross about a warm(ed) cocktail, in my opinion.

Makes 1 cocktail.
