Happy Apple

This drink is happily refreshing and one of the better cider cocktails out there. Of course the original recipe was intended to fortify cloudy farm squeezed cider. I changed it up and used Angry Orchard's crisp apple cider. It is hard cider with a nice sweet sparkle. The presence of Lyon rum in my version means that there is a caramel aspect that also fits with cider.

Incidentally, this is the first drink made at my new condo, so there's a new background and drinking. I'm looking forward to doing a lot more drinks at my new home.
  • 2 oz. gold rum (combined Lyon dark rum with equal parts light rum)
  • 3 oz. cider (Angry Orchard Crisp Apple used)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • lime peel
Build drink in an Old Fashioned glass with ice and liquid ingredients. Stir gently and garnish with lime peel.
