Review:

A Daiquiri made with flavoursome honey in place of sugar, or a Bee's Knees with rum in place of gin. However you view this, it's damn tasty.

Variant:

Made with Jamaican rum this becomes a Honey Bee and when made with gin it's known as a Bee's Knees. Topped with champagne as served long this becomes an Airmail.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in David A. Embury's 1948 Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
