Who runs the world? Beyoncé.

Queen B's birthday is today, September 4, and in honor of the big day, Mandrake will serve a special cocktail in Beyoncé's name.

One of South Beach's most Instagrammable restaurants invites the Beyhive in to celebrate with the Drunk in Love cocktail ($14), made with Cîroc peach vodka, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, and simple syrup and garnished with three slices of roasted peach. This peach cocktail refers to Beyoncé's song "Partition," in which she sings, "He like to call me Peaches when we get this nasty." Sounds like just the right way to celebrate the birthday of musical royalty.

In addition to offering the Beyoncé cocktail special, Mandrake will also debut a trio of rice-free rolls. Chef de sushi Sylvio Richardson has created a carb-free sushi experience with the Aristotle 300 ($14), made with salmon, tuna, snow crab, whitefish, cucumber, daikon, ají amarillo, green tea seasoning, and red spice seasoning. Fans of the classic dragon roll will enjoy the Chef Sylvio Skinny Dragon ($14), made with eel, shrimp tempura, masago, scallions, daikon, and eel sauce. Rounding out the trio is the saucily named Put It in Your Mouth ($14), made with crab mix, scallions, avocado, microcilantro, and spicy mango.

Looking for something heartier after downing a few Drunk in Love cocktails? Opt for Mandrake's summer menu, featuring three courses for $39.99. Dishes include butter lettuce salad, maki rolls, shrimp and enoki pad thai, and grilled black Angus beef tenderloin. Round out the meal with a passionfruit tart or house-made mochi.

So gather all your single ladies and head to Mandrake to get drunk in love in honor of Beyoncé and her big day.
