About the Drink

I wanted to take a classic and bump it up a little bit when I created the B’s Knees. With the same base as the classic Bee’s Knees, (lemon, honey & gin) I added fresh some fresh components, basil and cucumber, as well as the spiced pear liqueur to really have the flavor of the cocktail pop. I changed the spelling of the name in memory of a great man and friend we lost way too soon, Chef B. Feel like he’d enjoy one of these after a long night in the kitchen.
