Autumn rum recipe
An arrangement to avoid morale drops!
You need two apples, an abate pear, about twenty grapes, and a large jar. Choose the apple variety you prefer (fuji or gala are good for the game). Your fruit must come from organic farming, to avoid an infusion of pesticides and other chemicals....
- Peel and cut the two apples into quarters.
- Do the same with the pear, and insert it into the bottle.

- Add a cinnamon stick and a vanilla pod.
- Sweeten the arranged rum with three tablespoons of honey.
You can add a star anise and a bay leaf to decorate and balance the rum.
