The BEST Spiced Rum Highball Cocktails

Coming up in this Blog is my Top Eight Spiced Rum Highballs. What I've done very, very quickly I've taken each of my favourite, non-Coca Cola mixes, and I've found out my favourite Rum to mix with each of them. So, this is my top eight simple serve Highballs, not including Coke.




Right then, this is my final review of 2019. These are the Spiced Rums that I've featured so far this year. 33 of them I've reviewed on this channel. The questions piling into me now, all the time, are what's my favourite Spiced Rum mixed with this, what's my favourite Rum for that, what's my neat sipping Rum. So, that's what these three videos have been all about. What I've done is I've found my favourite out and out Spiced Rum to mix with each one of these.




no8 - Sekforde Light & Spiced Rum Mixer

Let's start off with the first mixer Sekforde's Light and Spiced Rum Spirit Mixer hints of Cacao, Mint, Rose, and Lime in there. So, what is my favourite Spiced Rum to mix with this out of the 33 that I've tried so far? Well, here it is. This is Black Tears, a Cuban Spiced Rum. Distilled in Cuba, Spiced in Cuba. Hints of Chocolate...Cacao, Coffee, a bit of Pepper in there, I just think that works very, very well together. You will be looking at roughly 35 pounds a bottle. This is my favourite combo for Sekforde.

no7 - Ting Grapefruit Soda

The seventh mixer that I'm going to show you, this is Ting. This is a Grapefruit Soda think Lilt without the Pineapple. The Spiced Rum that I thought works the best with Ting, is this one. Barti Spiced. This is a lovely Spiced Rum from Wales, Pembrokeshire Coast. I could not find a better Spiced Rum to mix with Ting. I just thought that combination worked very, very well. You can pick up Barti on Master of Malt, just under 30 pounds. About 28 pounds a bottle for consumer price. Trade price is a little bit cheaper than that. Links in the show notes.

no6 - Fentimans Tropical Soda

The sixth place mixer that I'm going to show you, this is Fentimans Tropical Soda. A lot of supermarkets now are taking this on, and Fentimans do the 500ml screw top bottles, much like Fever Tree do now, as well. So you can get that in Morrison's, Ocado, all those sort of places. Go and check it out. If you haven't got that sweet tooth you will absolutely love that. Tropical Soda, hints of Pineapple, Cardamon, bits of Juniper in there as well, Pear Extract. So, what is my favourite Spiced Rum to go with that out of the 33 that I've tasted? Well, we're going back to, I've just featured this, Black Tears. There's just something about, because that's not a sweet Rum, or a Spiced Rum at all. There's just something how it works really, really well together. The whole sort of Pineapple thing bounces off the coffee. Now Pineapple and Coffee is kind of a well known tiki combination that works really, really well. You got a Cacao in there as well. I just think that really, really works. I could not find a better Spiced Rum to mix with Fentimans Tropical Soda.

no5 - Ginger Beer; Franklin & Sons

This is Ginger Beer. This is my favourite Ginger Beer, Franklins and Sons. So, fifth place, ginger beer for me, it used to be my absolute go-to. Ginger Beer, Spiced Rum, Ginger Beer, absolutely it's all I used to drink, really. However, certain mixes that have come on now that, for me, are just ahead of this. So, what are we going with, what's my favourite? I am going Rumbullion. That is my favourite Spiced Rum to mix with that Ginger Beer. Out and out, better for me than any other Spiced Rum there. Really really liked it. It's also featured in my top three sipping Spiced Rums, really, really like that, 42.6% APV. Big notes of Vanilla, slight bits of Orange, Clove. Combination just works exceptionally well. That's Rumbullion online, roughly about 35 pounds, Master of Malt. Some supermarkets have got this, I think Tescos might actually do this in really big bottles, Ocado and places like that. So, that is my Spiced Rum and ginger beer serve.

no4 - Fever Tree Spiced Orange Ginger Ale

Fourth place, non-Coke mixer I'm going Fever-Trees Spiced Orange Ginger Ale. What am I recommending with this, what is my favourite Spiced Rum out of 33 I've done so far to mix with that? Well, I'm going the whole orange on orange. This is Diablesse. It's their Clementine Spiced Rum. Again, one of the first ones that I featured. The combination of those two just works so, so well together. While that does work with a hell of a lot of Spiced Rums, a big favourite, I'm always featuring that. I come back to this one, because that is my favourite Spiced Rum to mix with that. Just very, very quickly recapping. Manchester based company, going on a base Rum, 40% ABV. Spiced up traditionally, and then Spiced up. This ones got, they have got a normal one as well. This one is Spiced up with clementine. Online Master of Malt links in the show notes, roughly about 32 pounds a bottle.
