Frozen Bee's Knees

Enjoy this refreshing twist on the classic Prohibition cocktail with a frozen Bee's Knees. Freezing the honey, lemon juice and water into ice cubes keeps the drink cold and eliminates the need for ice so the drink doesn't dilute as you sip on it.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
