The Appleton Estate Manhattan Recipe

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

Our bottle of Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum came with us on our recent trip to Ontario. I’m not a big liquor drinker, but John enjoys rum-mixed drinks. He likes to mix it with Coke, but I told him I would make him a special drink that I hoped he would like!


Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum is the number one premium rum in Canada and is enjoyed by many around the globe. It’s made from a blend of 15 choice aged rums giving it a sophisticated taste. John said it goes down very smooth.

The special drink I made for him was The Appleton Estate Manhattan. He’s a guy and didn’t say much and just that he liked it. If you aren’t used to drinking liquor, you’ll find the recipe a little strong.

    Try it mixed with pop or juice if you prefer something less powerful. That’s how I like to make my drinks. However, if you want to impress your guests with a sophisticated drink, this is your drink!


    Look for Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum in your local liquor store. If you can’t find the Angostura bitters, any kind of bitters will do. Enjoy!
