Bee's Knees Cocktail

This variation of a Bee’s Knees cocktail calls for rum and beckons to be enjoyed outdoors for brunch on a summer weekend. Choose a gold rum like Bacardi, Don Q, or Flor de Cana Rum and an orange liqueur like Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or Potter’s Orange Curacao. If you’re feeling mischievous, stick it to those bees and swap out the powdered sugar for some honey. You’ll need to mix the cocktail really well to dissolve it, but the ingredient perfectly suits this drink.
