Campari & Yolo 10 Year Old Rum, "Works for Me"

     This is a good summer bitter/sweet cocktail that will go along good with your afternoons by to pool or out on the boat.  For me, this is a great early evening aft deck cocktail for the summer months.  It is refreshing and not too sweet yet not bitter either.

     The characteristics of the Yolo 10 year rum and those of the Campari marry well, with just a touch of sweetness from the Orgeat.  Give this one a try, I think that you will find it very satisfying.
