The Story Behind The Aviation Bee's Knees
This Prohibition-era cocktail was invented as a way to mask the taste of bathtub gin with honey and lemon. Today, it’s an excellent example of how high-quality ingredients, like Aviation American Gin, can really make a cocktail shine. Using local or specialty varieties of honey in the syrup can add more to the depth and richness of the drink.
