Bay Summer Cocktail No. 1

Bay Summer No. 1

This year’s unusually sunny and warm weather in San Francisco is making me crave tropical cocktails. Since Smuggler’s Cove isn’t open for breakfast, (I’m a big fan of eye-opener cocktails on the weekends,) I came up with a tiki cocktail of my own that is easy to make and refreshing on hot days.

Bay Summer Cocktail No. 1

1 oz Don Q silver rum

1/2 oz Kraken dark rum

1/2 oz Chartreuse

2 oz Pineapple juice

1/2 oz Lime juice

1 tsp Homemade aprium preserves (The apriums I used have a strong jasmine note when cooked into preserves, but you could substitute high quality apricot jam.)

1 Small apricot, chopped

Dash of aromatic bitters

Muddle the preserves and apricot in a cocktail shaker. Add all other ingredients plus ice and shake until frothy and chilled. Serve with an apricot slice garnish.
