I had some cider left from a recipe (FTs 18th century drunken chicken) and a small amount of dark rum. I tried a homemade pina colada with the rum, didn't work--then I poured myself a glass of the hard cider, added rum and fell in love.
- Fill glass with ice, old fashioned or the sort in my pic; add the cider and then the rum. Stir, don't shake, sit back and enjoy.
- This is GOOD.
Yum! As a alternative from dark rum's molasses-leaning flavor (think Gosling's Black Seal, or Cruzan's Black Strap), sometime try a lighter - but still spiced- rum like Sailor Jerry. There are notes of vanilla in Sailor Jerry's that heighten the appleness (?) of the hard cider. I order a pint of cider & a shot of Sailor Jerry, sip down the cider an inch, and pour the shot into the cider. No ice. I call it a "Jerry Bomb", although actually dropping the shot glass into the pint isn't necessary. LOL
I added less rum because the first time it was too strong. Very simple and a nice drink in the winter. Thanks for sharing.
This was very good, but strong :) We enjoyed this during our New Year's Day feast! Made for Comfort Cafe, January 2010!
