It is About Time to "Fall Back" Again

     Daylight Savings Time is about to go away for another year, making it officially fall in my mind anyway.  It is time for a cocktail fit for the season.  It needs to be a mixture of the tropics and the mainland, so here we go.  I've just created this little cocktail to get us out of "Pumpkin Time".  Fall is about apple cider and the flavors of the tropics as well, bringing an end to summer beach times and the start of a colorful season of holidays and changing seasons.

Fall in the Caribbean
  • 2 oz. Flor de Caya 7 Year Old Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Agave Nectar
  • 1 oz. Apple Juice
  • 1 oz. DeKuyper Pomegranate Liqueur
  • 1/4 oz. Dry Curacao

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a 12 oz. glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar and garnish with apple slices .
    Lets take advantage of the short days and long nights to play with new ideas for fun cocktails and great relaxation on the aft deck or in front of the fireplace.  It doesn't matter where you are, just that you are using your time wisely and trying out new and fun ideas.  ;o)
