Summer Berry Cocktail Recipe: How To Make It With Kraken Rum

Hosting a party and want a fruity, summery drink to serve up to your friends? This raspberry and blackberry cocktail is the perfect mix of sweetness with a hint of spice, thanks to the addition of the secret ingredient - Kraken. Never heard of it? The Caribbean black rum is named after a mythical sea monster. It's blended with a mix of 11 spices and comes in a distinctive Victorian-inspired bottle.

It makes some pretty impressive cocktails too - especially if you get your glass right.


Want to make one at home? Mix together the following ingredients:
50ml Kraken spiced rum
15ml lime juice
15ml gomme syrup
3 raspberries
2 blackberries
Splash of ginger ale

Add an apple fan and orange wedge to garnish and you're ready to serve.

And if you want to sample the berry drink in stunning surroundings, London rooftop bar Skylounge is offering half price Kraken rum cocktails every Sunday from 3pm - 7pm during the Skylounge Sunday Sessions.
