If you’re loving the summer farmers market as much as we are, this is a drink for you! Apricots in the store are often hard and sour.

We used the homemade cherry bitters from this recipe. It’s a super-easy recipe, but you can definitely substitute store-bought cherry bitters. If you use commercial cherry bitters or another type of bitters, such as Angostura, be aware that they will be a little stronger and so you will probably only need one dash.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe apricot
  • 1 1/2 oz dark rum
  • 1-2 dashes cherry bitters
  • Ginger ale

Instructions

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.
