    Description

    The Bee’s Knees is a classic gin cocktail dating back to the early 1900’s. Jeff updated this classic by using sweet Honeycrisp apples, honey, and savory sage.

    For more of Jeff’s apple-inspired drinks, watch his Apples for autumn episode, or view his Apple Smash recipe, or Apple Pear White Wine Sangria recipe.
