Bluto’s Spiced Rum Cider

Warm, spirited Cider = happiness

Bluto's Apple Cider

This weekend, my friend Bluto made some delicious Apple Cider and served it with Rum. It was a soothing, alcohol-based soup and it warmed the cockles of my heart. Here’s my official rating: Effing Delish.

You’ll Need:

  • Apples – try a mix of Red Delicious and Green Delicious. Note: use only sweet apples
  • Food Processor
  • Cheesecloth
  • Knife


  1. Use a blend of fresh apples
  2. You’ll need 36 apples to make a gallon
  3. Wash, core, slice, quarter, and puree the apples
  4. Pour the apples over the cheesecloth
  5. Boil the cider and then cool it down
  6. If you live in the US, add 2 to 3 cups of Red Hot Candy – Note: alternately you can use cinnamon sticks
  7. Add Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum 8. You can also try Nutmeg, Cloves, and Ginger in the mix. Amounts Once you’ve got your cider, taste test your way through the addition of the Red Hot/Cinnamon, Spiced Rum, and other spices.
