Fan Fiction: Sneak Peek!

The Bebbo Cocktail 
Gin, Lemon Juice, Honey, Orange Juice

"Another idiotically named drink, the Bebbo was based on the more desirably titled Bee's Knees Cocktail, but with the addition of orange juice. 'The Bee's Knees' was 1920s flapper slang for the best, top-knotch, cat's pajamas. 'Bebbo' is Konkani (one0 of the twenty-two official languages of India) for frog. Other than that? It's just a name, and more often a nonsense nickname. Nevertheless, Bebbo has the last laugh. The virtuous Bebbo may have been forgotten, but it's here, whereas the not-so-great Bee's Knees remains, justly, nowhere to be found."
-Ted Haigh, Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails
