#DOTW: Appleton Sunrise

Up here in the North East it got cold really quick. We had a rough summer here in New York, and I am ready for the fall. Cool temperatures, falling leaves, Halloween, Thanksgiving, these are some of the best times of the year. This Appleton Sunrise cocktail is another great drink for the the change of seasons in my opinion. It’s still summery enough with the rum and orange juice, but the colors are definitely fall-like, even Halloween-like. It’s sweet and delicous, a fun cocktail any way you look at it!

What you’ll need:

Add Appleton Rum and freshly squeezed orange juice to a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well. Strain into a Martini glass. Add a dash of grenadine, then slowly drop in a Maraschino cherry (slowly because you don’t want to disturb the color separation between the orange juice and the red of the grenadine).

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
