This is one of my original recipes. Every year for my birthday I treat myself to a day off spent experimenting with a new drink, one of those is Sweet Summer Days.

Bacardi's Apple Rum is a sweet light rum that is delightful on it's own, but when it's mixed it adds a wonderful touch to a cocktail that is hard to reproduce with other ingredients.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

Yield: 1 Cocktail


  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 3/4 ounce Bacardi apple rum
  • 1/4 ounce lemon juice
  • green apple wedge or lemon wedge for garnish


  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Wet the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with the lemon wedge.
  4. Pour the contents of the shaker into the glass.
  5. Garnish with a wedge of green apple or lemon.
