A few weeks ago, I went to a wonderful Christmas in July dinner party on Scotland Island. My offerings, Sailor Jerry glazed pigs in blankets and Mulled Rum made with Kraken Dark Spiced Rum – of course they were!
Christmas in July is for all us northern hemisphere dwellers who have set up camp in the southern hemisphere. We ultimately recreate Christmas with our friends and no family… which ultimately makes it a little better than an actual December Christmas. No? Either way, we get two Christmases, and that’s awesome!
Any who, I based my Mulled Rum on Kraken’s amazing Squid Bite cocktail – with a few little cheeky extras.
All you’ll need:
- Two cups Kraken Dark Spiced Rum
- Three cups of Bundaberg apple cider
- Orange slices
- Three Star anise husks
- Cinnamon sugar for the glass rim
And here is the best part, all you need to do is throw all of the above into a pot, bring to boil and serve up to your guests.
Whilst your mulled rum is get all yummy and warm, run an orange slice around rim of your glass and then dip the rim of your glass into the most amazing ingredient ever, cinnamon sugar.
Once your mulled rum is all warm, pour that bad boy into your cinnamon sugar rimmed glass and enjoy possibly the best mulled rum ever! 😉
