In the pursuit of new cocktails, particular something suitable for the autumnal season, I read about an Apple Ginger drink that sounded very Fall-y. It’s simply a combination of apple rum and ginger beer so on the way home tonight from running errands I grabbed a bottle of Bicardi Big Apple Rum. I liked the flavor combination, but the rum is a little too sweet for my tastes. Fortunately, June likes it so we’ll get through the bottle — eventually.(For our drinks the next night, I made myself an Old Fashioned instead and enjoyed that a lot more. And a bit of trivia for you — the Old Fashioned was actually created here in Louisville!) But back to the Big Apple Rum. I really liked the graphic on the bottle and after re-coloring the photo a bit, I ended up with what you see below, which to me is slightly reminiscent of those vintage alcohol posters.
