A classic Prohibition-era cocktail, the Bees Knees is traditionally shaken and served up, but we also love adding a bit of carbonation to liven it up and lengthen it out from time to time. In this variation, we combine a smooth barrel-aged gin with our ultra bubbly Club Soda No. 1 for a sweet, smoky and effervescent refresher.
Barrel & Bumble Recipe:
2 oz Barrel-Aged Gin
.75 oz Lemon Juice
.5 oz Honey Simple Syrup
Top Note Club Soda No. 1, to top
Garnish: lemon wheel
Stir all ingredients together in an ice-filled Collins glass and garnish.
