In The Case of Bonnie & Clyde in Rome, Laurel is treated to quite a few glasses of Bee’s Knees. Elvin, the little scamp of a bartender, was using a well-known recipe of the time that was particularly good at covering up the quality, or lack thereof, of the liquor used.

Below is my interpretation of the recipes I’ve seen. A few call for straight up honey, so if you want to live dangerous, go for it. This is a great way to use up some honey that has maybe crystallized.
Enjoy! Do you have a favorite Prohibition cocktail?
