Honey syrup

Honey starts as flower nectar collected by bees and gets broken down into simple sugars stored inside the honeycomb. The design of the honeycomb and constant fanning of the bees' wings causes evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey. Honey's color and flavor vary based on the nectar collected by the bees.

Honey Syrup is a simple syrup (sugar and water) created with equal parts honey and water (instead of sugar). It's easier to obtain than simple syrup, as the honey will dissolve in warm water, unlike sugar.

Honey is a mixture of sugars, mostly fructose, and glucose. It has particular flavors and properties that come from the flowers. Fake honey is generally some honey mixed with other sugar syrups. These syrups come from plants like sugar cane, corn, or rice.

Honey use and production have a long and varied history as an ancient activity. Several cave paintings in Cuevas de la Araña in Spain depict humans foraging for honey at least 8,000 years ago.

Bees Knees

The Bee's Knees is a rejuvenating Prohibition-era cocktail, pleasant on spring and summer afternoons. It is a simple mixture of gin, lemon juice, and honey syrup, and the recipe is easy to make at home. Frank Meier, an Austrian-born bartender, is the author of this cocktail at the Hotel Ritz Paris in the 1920s. Changing from sugar to honey creates a slightly richer variant of the gin sour. The replacement was made because honey is better to mask the unpleasant taste and aroma of the gin. The honey comes in the way of homemade honey syrup, a simple combination of honey and water that adds complexity and sweetness. The lemon juice complements that sweetness with fresh and tart acidity and it brings the cocktail into balance. A Bees Knees is a Prohibition Era cocktail made with gin, fresh lemon juice, and honey. It is served shaken and chilled, often with a lemon twist. The name comes from prohibition-era slang meaning "the best". The unique name is a convention of the time: The phrase "bee's knees" was popular slang used to call something excellent or outstanding. With today's variety of gins, the bee's knees is a cocktail with many options.
