Thank you Appleton® for partnering with Half Full on the Bartenders At Home cocktail video series.
What inspired you to create this cocktail? “I always like a drink that requires some smashing of ice! Drinks that can be built rather than shaking or stirring are a nice easy way to make a cocktail and also make less dirty dishes! Plus, they look beautiful.”
When would you serve this drink? “I think this is a late afternoon or brunch time cocktail.”
What food would you pair it with? “Jerk chicken would be great.”
Name the person (dead or alive) you’d like to make this cocktail for. “My Mama. She loves a good rum drink!”
