Sometimes the story behind a cocktail is almost as good as the drink itself. Was it created by a famous person, or named after a celebrity? Was it created for a contest, or just thrown together by accident? Has it become a classic, or was it forgotten by time?

Which brings us to the Miss Belle, and the answer to the above questions. It’s actually the same answer across-the-board: no one seems to know. For some cocktails, there are more ‘true stories’ about their origins than there are ingredients in the drink, but history is very silent on the Miss Belle cocktail. No one seems to claim it, and it’s not a variation of other ‘belle’ cocktails like the Southern Belle, the Wedding Belle, or the Belle Notte. There’s not even an official IBA (International Bartenders Association) recipe.

But despite all that, the Miss Belle is quite a tasty little cocktail. And how could it miss? The orange deliciousness of Grand Marnier is a natural to pair with chocolatey crème de cacao. Add smooth dark rum to warm it up a notch, and away you go!
