Cocktail of the Week: RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.

In honor of the late, great and notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the RBG cocktail is a little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, and when you put it all together for family and friends, you'll be sure to get a full-court approval.


  • 1 1/2 oz. Black Barrel Rum
  • 1/4 oz. Banane du Brésil liqueur
  • 1/4 oz. Domaine de Canton Ginger liqueur
  • 3 dashes vanilla extract
  • Garnish: skewered brûléed bananas
