HAPPY THIRSTY THURSDAY!
I was thinking with the three day weekend coming up there are few things that are better than a three day weekend, but I've decided this cocktail is almost as good.
To me, the unofficial end to summer means a few things: festivals, relaxing, last visit to the splash pad, one last bon fire with the kids, and stone fruit. This time of year we are buying up plums, nectarines, peaches and cherries and eating them up any way we can before they are officially out of season.
I thought something with plums would be delicious. So, I came up with a little something.
Plum and Rum Cocktail
1 medium sized ripe plum sliced
1 Tbs extra fine sugar
2 oz of light lemon rum (I used Bacardi Limon)
5 oz tonic water or club soda
Fill a cocktail glass with ice and set aside.Then, in a shaker muddle together sugar and plum until plum is completely mashed. Then add the rum and ice and shake for about 1 minute until well incorporated.
Strain into cocktail glass.
Finish with tonic water.
Enjoy the end of summer with this wonderful cocktail!
