Cocktail O’Clock: Apple Ginger Brew
Has anyone else noticed that ginger shows up as an ingredient on every single cocktail list lately? Not that I’m complaining. It adds just the right mixture of sweetness and bite to any drink.
Here’s a perfect fall that I can’t believe I haven’t thought of before — mixing ginger beer up with apple for a spicy-sweet autumn mix (and of course adding a l’il rum).
Apple Ginger Brew
1 1/2 ounces Shellback Spiced Rum

2 ounce Unfiltered Apple Juice
1 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
Chilled Ginger Beer
Lemon Spirals and Apple Slices for Garnish
In a mixing glass add the rum, cinnamon syrup, apple juice and lemon juice.
Shake with ice until well blended.
Strain into an ice filled Collins glass.
Top with chilled ginger beer.
Stir to mix and garnish with lemon spirals and apple slices.
