Autumn is absolutely everywhere at the moment - golden trees, orange pumpkins and lots of apples. And this is a cocktail to match, helping to get you in the mood for the season and keep you warm when it's cold outside. It's a perfect drink for sipping while you sit round a bonfire and enjoy the flashes and bangs of the fireworks.
I made a cold drink, with ice, but if you need to warm your cockles, try it with hot apple cider. Just put the ingredients in a pan and heat gently. Don't let it boil though, or you'll start to burn off the alcohol.
Apple rum twist
1 1/2 shots dark rum
3 shots apple juice (or warm cider)
1/2 shot lemon juice
Put all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a couple of cubes of ice. Shake it well and pour over more ice. Garnish with a good slice of apple.
