After a long day putting up Christmas decorations, a tall refreshing drink just hits the spot.
(That's a little hint to let you know that the rest of the photos in December will be taken next to the various holiday decorations around my house.)
This one is basically a collins recipe (citrus + fizz), with the ginger ale adding the sweetness. I decided to use a more standard ginger ale instead of Reed's, which is pretty intense with the ginger. This one goes down easy.
1.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)
1 oz Orange juice
.5 oz lemon juice
Ginger ale (Safeway Select)
Shake all ingredients except ginger ale with ice and strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Fill with ginger ale and stir.
