Blackberry, OJ, & Spiced Rum Cocktail

blackberries, orange juice, and Kraken Spiced Rum cocktail

Summer evenings require something fruity and refreshing to beat the heat and keep things interesting. This cocktail does just that. With fresh summer berries, refreshing tangy orange juice, and Kraken Black Spiced Rum, you’re in for a sweet sumer party.

You’ll need:

  • Blackberries- 4 per drink (or more if you’re feeling extra fruity)
  • 1 shot of your favorite spiced rum
  • orange juice



Start with your blackberries. Drop three into each glass and muddle them into a juicy pulpy mess.

Add ice cubes for extra chill


Pour one shot of your spiced rum. I use Kraken Black Spiced Rum. It’s absolutely my favorite and we always have a bottle of it around. We keep ours in the freezer so it’s always extra chilly. It makes the bottle look all frosty and cool when it comes out, too.

Finally, add your orange juice, stir, and top with one last blackberry for garnish. This would be wonderful with a few leaves of mint as well.
