The good mixer

A zingy, fruity pick-me-up with rum, lime and ginger beer that’s perfect for that time on a Friday evening

Something fresh, fruity and zingy for spring. The crisp finish on the rum goes really nicely with the apple and ginger, because it pairs with the fruity notes, rather than overpowering them.


30ml good white rum – I use Bacardi Carta Blanca 30ml apple juice 30ml good ginger beer – I use Fentimans ½ lime 3 mint leaves, to garnish

Fill an old fashioned glass with crushed ice, pour over the rum, apple juice and ginger beer, in that order, then stir gently to combine. Finish with a splash of lime juice, garnish with a slice of fresh lime and the mint leaves, and serve.
