I have a slight obsession with fresh fruit and herbs in my cocktails. When the summer gives me all this sweet freshness I cannot turn it down. There is nothing better than fresh fruit because it brings in a nice amount of sweetness without too much added sugar.
This simple drink was dreamed up in my kitchen one afternoon after I roasted up a whole mess of fruit. If you have never roasted fruit you are in for a pleasant surprise.
It brings out a deep caramelized flavor that pairs perfectly with the dark spiced rum. Also, because I have an obsession with seltzer water the drink was topped off to bring in just a hint of fizz.
