Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, drink to that!
It’s Friday and I have another yummy cocktail recipe for you to try. Actually this week I have a few courtesy of Appleton Estate Rum.
Ruby Rum Cocktail
This is my personal concoction, that screams Summertime. I dare you to find a Caribbean person that doesn’t love rum punch. This isn’t exactly rum punch but it is just as delicious.
- 2oz Appleton Estate Rum (Signature will do just fine)
- 1/3 oz lime
- 2oz Pineapple Juice
- 1/2oz Ribena Blackcurrant Syrup
Put ice, pineapple juice, Appleton into a shaker, squeeze the juice of 1/3 lime into the shaker, throw the lime into the shaker. Shake Shake Shake. Pour into any glass you like (it taste awesome regardless…just leave out the ice). Pour the Ribena Blackcurrent Syrup into the center of the glass. The syrup will settle at the bottom of the glass giving a beautiful ombre look. Garnish with fresh fruit!
Appleton Estate Rum Cocktails
You know already how much I love Appleton so when they sent me the recipes for some of their cocktails I, of course, wanted to share it with you! These cocktails use the Signature Blend, 8 Year Old Reserve and the 12 Year Old Rare. All are delicious but each vintage has a distinct flavor that perfectly compliments the cocktail being crafted.
