Bacardi Fruit Cocktail

I decided to break my self imposed sabbatical last night while at James and Sonia's wedding. Though the bar was simply furnished with the basics, it was fully open and was being visited often by the wedding guests. I decided to keep it light by ordering a Bacardi and Ginger-Ale. At the same time, the fruit plate was being served. Instead of eating the fruit, I decided to cut up the melons, pineapples and watermelon into smaller pieces and drop them into the drink and using my spoon to muddle them up a little in the glass. With every subsequent drink, I just had the bartender keep making the cocktail in the same fruit filled glass. So here is what the cocktail looked like:

The Bacardi Fruit Cocktail
1.5oz of Bacardi Silver
Ginger Ale
Fresh fruit (I used Pineapple, Melon, Watermelon)

In a glass put fruit on the bottom and muddle slightly. Add ice and pour in Bacardi and top with Ginger Ale. Stir and serve.
I like how the little pieces of the muddled fruit went down with the sips of the cocktail. It reminded me of a Sangria though on tasting my table mate Elsie said it was a "little stronger" than Sangria. I enjoyed the cocktail especially since I wasn't trying to overdo it.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Until Then Happy Drinking,
