Bee Sting

Bee Sting Cocktail
Matthew Kelly / Supercall

During Prohibition, undercover imbibers would flavor bootleg swill with lemon and honey to make it more palatable, which gave way to cocktails like the Bee’s Knees. This spicy take on the classic gin and honey cocktail gets a kick from muddled jalapeño. The vegetal bite is downright addictive.
