Beverages » Thyme Bee's Knees
The phrase "the bee's knees" originated in the 1920's during the Prohibition era, meaning "height of excellence." There are many theories on the birth of the classic Bee's Knees cocktail, including a popular assumption that the additions of honey and lemon masked the aromas of potent and awful outlawed "bathtub" (homemade) gin. Jesse Dupuis of Woodward at Ames mixes an herbaceous take on the Bee's Knees using lemon juice and a thyme-honey simple syrup to add sweetness to palatable (as opposed to homemade diesel fuel), aromatic gin.
