Friday Night - Cocktail Night

Ginger Rum Cocktail

It is Friday once again and that means a new cocktail recipe to kickstart your weekend.

Today I made a simple rum based cocktail with clementine and ginger, served in a cocktail glass with cinnamon-sugar on the rim.
The sweetness of the Rum, the spiciness of the ginger and the sourness of the clementine go perfectly together with that hint of cinnamon you get with every sip.

Have a wonderful happy weekend ya’ll
