We would like to start by thanking our partners at Chapel Tavern in Reno, NV for making this deliciously refreshing recipe. Chapel Tavern features a full bar with more than 100 different types of whiskey plus a diverse selection of beers from around the globe. They offer nothing but quality and an exquisite experience at Chapel Tavern. This is why we feel compelled to share their expertly crafted Frozen Bee’s Knees, or should I say Bee’s Freeze!
History Of The Bee's Freeze Drink
"Bee's Knees" is a slang term used by people during the prohibition era to say that something was the best or very very good. The Bee’s Freeze is a frozen version of the Bee’s Knees, a gin cocktail created during the Prohibition era in the United States. This mix of gin with citrus juices and honey was made to mask the repugnant smell and taste of poorly made bathtub gin.
The goal of this frozen gin cocktail was to improve the taste of something that had a less than ideal taste, but the taste of this delicious cocktail with quality gin is even more popular to this day.
The first step in making the Bee’s Freeze is making the honey syrup, one of the ingredients in the Bee’s Freeze.
Let's Buzzzz right into this recipe!
Honey Syrup Recipe:1 cup of honey
1 cup of water
Combine honey and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, let cool to room temperature and transfer to a clean glass jar. Cover and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. After this step is done follow the following recipe and put into a Taylor 430 to complete the Bee’s Freeze.
Bee’s Freeze Recipe:3 liters London dry gin
5 liters house honey syrup
7 liters lemon
4 liters water
We've been doing business with our friends at Chapel Tavern for quite a while now. Part of their secret to making the bee's freeze was using a Taylor 430 machine that they bought from us at Slices Concession.
The Taylor 430 is one of our most popular machines & it's in high demand because of its efficiency and quality in making frozen desserts and drinks. We recommend a Taylor 430 to any type of venue looking to serve frozen beverages but we especially recommend it to venues, such as restaurants & bars, because our machines are designed for high volume sales.
