Author Notes: As the gin-based cocktails of summer fade to the back of our repertoires, fall calls for a more rich, deeper flavor. Bee's Knees is a classic summertime gin-based cocktail with lemon juice and honey syrup. I found an aged rum in my liquor cabinet and was inspired to make an autumnal riff on this classic. beemar
