My favourite rum combo ever is fresh green apple and spiced rum. Sadly, it is not a combo that many bars offer and when they do, it doesn’t really keep very well when made- it turns into a brown slush if you don’t drink it fast enough.

This power couple are so good together it’s borderline ridiculous. The crisp tart green apple mixed with the spiced rum is a force not to be messed with. Top that with a little nutmeg and cinnamon and, well, let’s just say, every other drink may as well go home as there is no way they can complete.

On this occasion, due to my lack of a fruit blender, I have had to use fresh organic apple juice and a touch of Ginger Ale to complete this cocktail. And I got to say, it was the bees knees. So I thought I would share my recipe with you guys.

I hope you enjoy it:

Kara’s Spiced Apple Rumble

  • 100ml Bacardi Ocho 8 Year Old Rum
  • 200ml Organic Apple Juice
  • 20ml Ginger Ale
  • Grating of Cinnamon stick
  • Grating of Nutmeg


Pour 100ml Bacardi Ocho 8 Year Old Rum into a highball glass. Follow that with 200ml Organic Apple Juice in to the glass and top with ice. Add 20ml Ginger Ale and add some crushed up ice to the mix. Grate some cinnamon and nutmeg on top and dive in.


This is a super refreshing cocktail which is perfect for a summers day. You will find it not overly sweet but has a lovely tang to it. The spiced rum adds an apple crumble finish which I adore! As we are using apple juice in this cocktail, there is thankfully no risk of this cocktail turning into a brown slushy you would get if you used fresh apple.
