Blue Sky This Morning and a Papa's Pilar Blonde Cocktail

     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.

Papa's Highball

  • 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)
