Friday Happy Hour: The Bacardi Apple Bite


This fall-inspired cocktail has a culinary twist -- an apple gastrique. The tartness of the apple gastrique provides a contrast is paired to the sweet oakiness of Bacardi's Gran Reserva Ocho Años, a super-premium mixing rum.

Mixologist Juan Coronado says: “Gastriques can dress up food or cocktails. The apple gastrique in the Bacardi Apple Bite imparts a nice and settled acidity and mellow sweetness. This cocktail has an elegant balance and a beautiful aroma of caramelized apples that I personally can enjoy all year round.”
