The Bee’s Knees is a new summer cocktail at New York City’s The Meatball Shop. It’s easy and refreshing, and the Honey Syrup balances the tartness of lemon juice and the aromatic bite of the gin. It’s the ultimate drink to whip up for a summer gathering on a Brooklyn rooftop, or as an after-work refresher. The recipe makes more Honey Syrup than you’ll probably need, but any extra will keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
