The Cinnamon Knees is our merry take on the classic Bees Knees cocktail. The original drink features the soothing marriage of honey and lemon over a fragrant gin base. Our addition of just the right amount of cinnamon provides a wonderful yuletide feeling of warmth.
The drink is said to have been invented by the wonderfully monikered “Unsinkable Molly Brown”, an American millionaires socialite, who was partying in Paris during the 1920s.
Mrs Brown gained her nickname due to surviving the sinking of the Titanic. She pressured the crew on the lifeboat she found herself upon, to head back to the shipwreck to rescue more passengers and famously threatened to throw the crewmen overboard if they didn’t assist her.
