A refreshing citrus cocktail that’s not too sweet or too strong. The garnish of the fresh cherry in the center makes this reminiscent of the black-eyed Susan flower!


1 ounce vodka
1 ounce rum
1 ounce triple sec
1 ounce pineapple juice
2 ounces OJ
2 ounces lemonade

Garnishes: Orange and cherries


1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.

2. Pour in all of the cocktail ingredients and shake well.

3. Strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry in the center.


If using whole cherries as a garnish, do not ingest any cherry seeds.

This drink is commonly made with sour mix, but I swapped that out for lemonade.

There are a few variations of this drink, you could substitute the rum for bourbon.
