If you would like to keep your martini cold longer, chill the martini glass ahead a time.
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
