Apple Cider Rum Smash
Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
Cinnamon sugar mix
1. Take the glass you’re going to serve the drink in and dip it into a shallow bowl of cider. Take the moistened glass and dip into a mixture of cinnamon sugar.
2. Combine 4 parts apple cider with 1 part gold/dark rum and 1 part Captian Morgan in a cocktail shaker. Essentially you want about 4 shots of apple cider and 1 shot of each liquor so it’s 2 parts apple cider to 1 part booze.
3. Shake over ice. Pour contents into the rimmed glass.
4. Garnish with rosemary. (Kallie, do I reallllly need the rosemary? YES! Gosh, just…don’t question the magic. The rosemary acts as an aromatic and the scent of the rosemary with the tastes of the cocktail is crucial to the peace-achieving levels of this cocktail.)
5. Life. Changed.
