Drink Of The Week: Bee's Knees

by Negronis Greg

Welcome back to Drink With Greg!

After immersing ourselves in the world of golf at the Master, we're thrilled to bring you another delectable concoction to tantalize your taste buds. This week, we're diving into the vibrant history of cocktail culture with a classic: the Bee's Knees.

Originating from the 1930s, during the Prohibition era, this timeless libation was crafted by none other than Frank Meier, a renowned bartender in Paris. Inspired by the buzzing energy of the Jazz Age, the Bee's Knees exudes sophistication with its harmonious blend of gin, honey, and lemon.

Join us as we rediscover the charm of this vintage cocktail and embark on a journey through its flavorful past.





Your Best Cocktail

It's not the Masters-at-home until you've made an Azalea. Mix 1¼ oz vodka, 5 oz lemonade and ½ oz of grenadine over ice with a cherry and orange slice garnish and you've got the signature cocktail of the Tournament.



  • 2 ox Plymouth Gin (Sub-Plymouth Gin Navy Strength)
  • 0.75 oz Lemon Juice
  • 0.75 oz Honey Syrup


Tips of the Trade

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe; no garnish.

While this drink has been available for almost 100 years. We were first introduced to it via Jim Meehan book "The PDT Cocktail Book" serves as both a tribute to PDT's creative energy and an ode to mixology. The book seamlessly blends historical context with imaginative recipes, catering to both novices and seasoned bartenders. It offers a window into PDT's world of inventiveness, encouraging readers to explore cocktails with newfound fervor.
