Bahama Bob's Election Day Rumtini

     Well today is election day here in the United States, most of us feel like we will need some sort of a pain killing cocktail before the day is over and the results announced.  Here is a good idea for a grass roots, earthy, grounded cocktail for your afternoon or evening.
     Apples are in season right now and you can't find a better time for apple based cocktails.  Here is an idea for a appletini made with unsweetened organic apple sauce.  The applesauce, the rum, the vermouth and the syrup unite to give you a wonderful apple cinnamon base to a great sipping martini that has a little bit of substance to it.

  Apple Sauce Rumtini
  • 2 oz. Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum
  • 2 tsp. Bahama Bob’s Cinnamon Honey Syrup
  • ½ oz. Dolin’s White Vermouth
  • 2 tsp. Organic Unsweetened Apple Sauce
Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake until thoroughly chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Garnish with a lemon zest.

Bahama Bob's Cinnamon Honey Syrup
  • ½ Cup of Dark Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Sugar in the Raw
  • ½ Cup Pure Clover Honey
  • 1 Cups of Water
  • 1 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp. Lemon Juice

Place all ingredients except the water and cinnamon in a pan and heat at 375 degrees stirring until all melts into a liquid.  Slowly add the water and bring to a boil.  Add Cinnamon and reduce heat to 230 degrees and bring to a slow boil and continue stirring for 5 minutes.  Pour into a dish that will not melt or crack and place in refrigerator for about an hour.  Pour into a dispensing bottle and put into refrigerator until ready to use.
