Bossa Nova

The wonderful thing about cocktails is that you create them from scratch. The magic is created right in front of you and can be adjusted by the slightest splash of this or long pour of that. This week, we feature a cocktail that is all about combining flavours. Aged rum, subtle apricot, sweet vanilla, crisp apple, and fresh lime blend to make this incredibly easy drinking cocktail.


1 oz Brugal Anejo Rum

¼ oz Galliano Liqueur

¼ oz Bols Apricot Brandy Liqueur

2 oz Apple Juice

½ oz Fresh Lime Juice

¼ oz Simple Syrup *

Garnish with lime wedges


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour all ingredients into it. Shake well and strain into a glass with new ice. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.


This drink can be shaken or, if you prefer, blended.

*To make simple syrup, combine equal parts of boiling water to sugar and leave to cool. Store in the refrigerator.
