Bee's Knees

Here's a mysterious cocktail with a bee in the title but no honey in the drink. That must be because in the 20s and 30s, if something was the bee's knees, it was really good or popular. Kind of like saying something was awesome in the 90s. Mad River demerara rum is a nice aged gold rum to use in this cocktail. There's plenty of vanilla spice and a hint of whiskey in the rum that shows through in the cocktail.
  • 2 oz. gold rum (Mad River First Run rum used)
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 3-5 dashes curacao
  • orange peel
Combine all ingredients except orange peel in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the orange twist.
