Fast and cold. That’s the two-man bobsled run, and also the character of this drink. Don’t try and finish this in record time. It takes less than 5 minutes to run the bobsled course — just about the time it takes to mix this drink. The Winter Olympics bobsled competition starts Sunday.
2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce orange curaçao
1/2 ounce white creme de menthe
2 ounces chilled soda
Pour all ingredients, except the soda, into an ice-filled highball glass. Stir until the glass is frosty. Add soda, stir a couple of times. Garnish with a narrow orange wedge.
