Spiced rum is the secret to this delicious drink because it adds depth and flavor with just one ingredient. If you really want a stand-out cocktail, it's easy to make your own spiced rum. Simply combine a bottle of rum with whole spices such as cloves, cinnamon sticks, allspice berries, black peppercorns, and star anise (fresh ginger is also a great addition). Store it in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid and let steep for a few days, shaking daily. When the flavor is to your liking, strain and bottle it, then put it to use in cocktails such as this one. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine ½ cup apple cider, ½ cup spiced rum, and 2 teaspoons lemon juice in a cocktail shaker over ice; shake until chilled, about 30 seconds. Pour over large ice cubes into two rocks glasses. Repeat with remaining apple cider, rum, and lemon juice. Add ¼ cup apple kombucha to each glass. Garnish each with 1 cinnamon stick, and apple slices, if desired.
