If you love cranberry and apple, this gorgeous cocktail is for you!

This drink is made with just four ingredients, quickly shake it up, pour and have a drink. It's great for any holiday party, celebration or to sip on at home on a relaxing evening.

It's slightly sweet from the apple cider, tart from the cranberry juice and the dark rum balances out both of the juices. The edible gold dust adds a pretty swirl making it so fun!

If you're making this drink for Halloween, you could also call it poison apple or witches brew to make it a bit more festive! It's also easy to customize with different flavors of juice, or liquor.
