Apricot Lady

I made this cocktail at work where I keep my house made apricot brandy. The other bartenders agree that the apricot flavor needs to be front and center, so after making a first go I added a little more apricot brandy.

What I like about the Apricot Lady is that it is very light and drinkable, easy to make, and probably satisfying to those guests who are not big drinkers. The egg white foam on top is a nice touch, but it is the simplicity of serving it on the rocks that won't turn off men looking for a strong drink with a feminine name.
  • 1 1/2 oz. light rum (Bacardi used)
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy (homemade apricot brandy used)
  • 1/2 tsp. triple sec
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • orange slice
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain out the ice and re-shake for foam. Pour into an Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice and garnish with the orange slice.
