This refreshing patio-sipper of a cocktail is created by Appleton Estate master blender Joy Spence.
• Slice of orange
• 1 oz (30 mL) Appleton Estate Reserve Blend
• 3 oz (90 mL) ginger ale
• 5 drops Angostura bitters
• Slice of orange peel to garnish
Squeeze the juices from the orange slice into an old-fashioned glass, then drop the slice into the glass and muddle it. Add ice, then the rum, ginger ale and bitters, stirring gently until combined. Garnish with a slice of orange peel. Serves 1.
