Hello everyone – happy Friday! Also, this is the first day of October. This needs to be celebrated with something utterly delicious. What about this Apple Cider Rum Cocktail then?
Since it’s Friday night, I am going to keep it super short and sweet. We shouldn’t waste any time. After all, this tasty cocktail won’t drink itself :)
Apple Cider Rum Cocktail
I know autumn days require something cozy and soul-warming, as well as stronger spirits. Buttered rum or buttered apple cider, for instance. But many of us can still enjoy lovely and relatively warm days in October. That’s when this Apple Cider Rum Cocktail would be a great option (As well as this Rose Infused Apple Cider.)
This cocktails is super easy to make, and it requires only four main ingredients:
What Do You Need To Make It?
Apple cider. I would recommend using aromatic, tart, and crisp apple cider such as heritage ciders. But something light and sweet like honey crisp apple cider would do (Just keep in mind the cocktails will be sweeter.)
Rum. Use white rum of your choice. There’s no need to use expensive one.
Maple syrup. Adds a nice sweetness.
Lemon juice. Balances out the sweetness. If your cider is quite tart, you can skip it.
Optional: apple slices and mint, for garnish.
Of course, you can adjust the ratio and make it stronger or lighter. Either way, it will be delightful!
I hope you like this cocktail, and you will it a try soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Happy weekend. Cheers!
