  • 4 oz apple cider
  • 1 1/2 oz spiced rum
  • 1 1/2 oz pomegranate juice
  • 3/4 oz grenadine
  • scant 1/4 tsp edible luster dust (I used a gold color, but silver is also beautiful)


  • Add ice to cocktail shaker, add ingredients, cover and shake. Strain into glass and serve!


Edible luster dust will settle at the bottom of the glass, so providing your guests with a cocktail stirrer is a great idea... so they can swirl the drink from time to time.
To make drink non-alcoholic, add an extra 3/4 oz of both apple cider and pomegranate juice to replace the rum.
