This is a classic but less well known cocktail that I've found to be a hit with a broad group of folks because it is just sweet enough, just tart enough to appeal to most palates. Our version elevates the flavor by adding acid from both lemon (traditional) and our own Honey Wine Vinegar. I hesitate making claims on improving the classics but I hope you will after tasting our Bees Knees.
