I love Thursdays because its one day closer to Fridays and it means that I get to share an amazing drink with you courtesy of Drink of the Week
1 ripe apricot
1 1/2 oz dark rum
1-2 dashes cherry bitters
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the rum and apricot. Add ice and shake thoroughly. Strain the drink into a glass. Add crushed ice on top of the apricot/rum mixture to keep the middled bits of fruit from floating around in the drink and to make it extra cold. Fill to the top with ginger ale and add a dash or two of bitters on top. Garnish with a slice of apricot.
The cherry bitters can be substituted for a store bought version.
