I realize I’m late to the ginger beer scene, but hey — I made it. Now that I’m here, I’m bringing some ginger beer poptails with me. Think dark and stormy cocktail pushed up against the sweetness of apricot syrup.
Along with that, I also brought something else I just discovered: red velvet apricots. Intriguing, huh? They are, but not as much as the name might suggest. It’s a basic apricot, wrapped in a deep purple skin, smaller and more concentrated in flavor. But to be fair, I guess I was expecting another layer of flavor, another level of fruity mystic — something other than a punched up flavor of its traditional orange-hued cousin.
The upside of that is if you can’t find the red velvet apricots the regular ones will do just fine for these dark and stormy poptails.
