Rummer – A Colonial Drink Three Ways

1 Comment

I mentioned in a post here about the colonial drink I fell in love with while visiting Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The drink is call The Rummer.  Duplicating it was on our list for one of the first things we did when we came back home.  After a run to the liquor store we were able to duplicate it and two variations.

Variation 2 – The Tennessee Pirate:

1 ounce Peach Brandy

1 ounce Apricot Brandy

1 ounce Honey Bourbon (we used Canadian Whiskey but any type of honey bourbon or whiskey would work.  Just use your favorite)

1 ounce Dark Rum

Maraschino Cherry for garnish

Be careful and please drink responsibly.  Remember these drinks are made of 100% liquor there isn’t anything in there to cut it with.
