Friday Night Cocktail: The Spur of the Moment!
Today, I made a quick trip to the liquor store and I had a plan for the weekend to really dive deep into building a creative cocktail without spending the money that goes into it. I was trying to find a Coconut Rum such as Largo Bay or something to make an infusion, but it was unavailable. I found a rum called Cockspur Fine Bajan Rum. I never heard it before, but I knew that Barbados made great rums such as the Mount Gay extra old. I said why not? I checked on my phone to sites such as Ministry of Rum, and found that a guy by the name of Arctic Wolf made a review of Cockspur Fine Rum . I was rather pleased with his review because all I wanted was a decent review.
I found a few other reputable reviews gave it a B to B+ grade. I said to myself, "Why not?"
I sipped it neat (I will provide a review of this later) and it was actually solid. So I said why not come up with a cocktail?
1 1/2 oz Cockspur Fine Rum
1 1/2 oz Cranberry Juice
Red Apple Garnish (wheel) with Cinnamon
Turned out incredible! The pricing? I got this bottle for half off at $5.99! Can't beat that!
