The hot summer months make for a very refreshing fall, and I'm so excited to warm up with some delicious, spicy cocktails now that the October chill is in full force.
I'm not usually a mojito, daiquiri, fruity type of gal, as I'll opt for spicy caesars and sharp martinis when I'm out with friends. Ginger ale is my soft drink of choice, so I jumped at the opportunity to try a classic Jamaican Mule with a splash of Appleton Estate Signature Blend Rum.
This rum is good. Smooth to the taste and easy to mix, with a friendly price tag of only $28.45 CAD at the LCBO. I had my Jamaican Mule on the rocks with Fever Tree Ginger Beer (link) at the cottage this past weekend with family.
