Apple Cider Cocktail with Rum Recommendations

For this Apple Cider Cocktail recipe I love to use white rum. It is has a smooth sweet flavor. However, spiced rum is a good choice for this drink because it’s sweet and has a flavor that blends well with the other ingredients. If you like a smoky dark flavor then you can also use dark rum.

Basically, use the flavor that you find most palatable or what you have on hand.
