Black Forest Fruit Rum Cocktail

Hey everyone, thanks for checking out my blog. Today’s post is a little different from the usual food and baking. I’m sharing a refreshing, fruity cocktail that is perfect for any summer afternoon. Although it is September we are having some warmer days so why not enjoy whilst it lasts. I’m not a big drinker but this was a nice mixture of rum and the sweetness of fruit. It’s also something a little different that’s fun to make. I’ve used black forest fruits but I imagine it would taste just as good with any berries.

Recipe: Berry Rum Cocktail (10 servings)

Ingredients

100ml white rum

Large handful of frozen black forest fruits (blackberries, cherries, grapes and blackcurrants)
