Cocktail of the Week: Knickerbocker

Knickerbocker Cocktail from


  • 2 1/2 ounces Vizcaya VXOP rum
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons raspberry syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange curacao
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • lime(s)

Instructions: Shake the rum,* raspberry syrup,** orange curaçao, and lime juice well with cracked ice. Place squeezed-out shell of half a lime in a double Old-Fashioned glass or small highball glass. (This is the earliest drink on record where you do this.) Pour the drink in, ice and all, and garnish with a few berries in season: raspberries, blackberries, blueberries — pretty much anything this side of crunchberries. Serve with a straw and a little spoon for the berries. If you’re making more than one at the same time, it’s easier to strain it into the glasses first and then pour the ice.

(Original recipe modified to include Vizcaya VXOP rum)
