Siesta Key Distiller's Reserve: Fall Cocktail Time

    I just received a wonderful Distiller's Reserve Siesta Key Rum that has been calling me to create a new fall cocktail.  The rum is absolutely wonderful and so flavorful on it's own, but when mixed with the flavors of fall it becomes a new fall standard cocktail.

Color Season Apple Cider
