This morning has shown with a blue sky, something that I haven't seen in quite some time. I welcome the change for the better and today is a good one for a new Papa's Pilar Blonde Cocktail. Papa's Pilar Blonde is a full flavored rum that goes unfiltered and has retained a blonde color from the 3 years in the barrel, and more flavor than most white rums. This makes for an interesting mixology issue, being a full flavored rum might not fit well with all conventional mixers. This is an interesting and refreshing summer cocktail that I think you will enjoy made with Papa's Pilar Blonde.
- 1 1/2 oz. Papa's Pilar Blonde Rum
- 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
- Juice of 1/2 Lime
- Dash of Bitters
- Top off with Barritt's Ginger Beer
Place all ingredients except the Barritt's Ginger Beer in a 12 oz, highball glass filled with ice, shake until chilled, and top off with Barritt's Ginger Beer. Garnish with a lime wheel and enjoy.
I hope we can really have a summer, and I can enjoy more cocktails like this one to refresh my afternoons. Think Summer, maybe we can have one and the rains can become our normal 30 minute to 1 hour events and not these seven day dirges. This will help the psyche as well as being refreshing. ;o)
