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.


  • Ice
  • 2 ounces aged rum (not spiced)
  • 1 ounces apricot nectar
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 ounces ginger beer


  1. 1.

    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.
