This cocktail is a slightly modified version of Toast's Apricot Fizz. Not that their drinks aren't brilliant, mind, it's just that I personally don't care for spiced rum (I think the "spice" is added by distillers in attempt to mask the lower quality of the rum), and I prefer the sharp sass of ginger beer over ginger ale's plebeian sweetness.
- 2 ounces aged rum (not spiced)
- 1 ounces apricot nectar
- 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 3 ounces ginger beer
Add a few ice cubes to a serving glass. Pour in rum, apricot nectar, and lime juice, then top with ginger beer. Stir lightly and serve immediately.
