I’m using Don Q Spiced Rum for premium quality and of course excellent flavor. The spiced rum will go perfectly with the sweeter flavors of this cocktail, and wait until you taste how warming the rum makes the flavor of the rum come out even more!
Just to give you a little history on this spiced rum made in Puerto Rico, Destilería Serrallés is one of America’s oldest family-owned businesses with a rum making tradition that that started in 1865. That’s where they produce this award-winning Don Q rum, which also happens to be the number one selling rum on the island.
To go even further, this company is one of the only distilleries in the world that doesn’t dump their waste in the ocean. So not only are they making top quality rum but they’re doing it in the best way possible.

So let’s get started.
Really all you need to do is add all the ingredients to a slow cooker and turn it on.
That’s it. Nothing else to it.
Let it go low and slow for 3-4 hours to really let the flavors blend together and it’s ready to serve.
You can definitely keep it going on low or the keep warm setting though instead of shutting it off, it’s just going to get better.
But me, I need to start grabbing a cup or so after a couple of hours. It just smells that good, I need to dive in.
We love making cocktails like this for just hanging out at home or even better for a party…but here’s the thing I need you to know.
This Slow Cooker Spiced Rum Cocktail is super tasty, super comforting and super easy to make. But right alongside your slow cooker should be the rest of the bottle of this Don Q Spiced Rum.
Because in addition to pouring yourself out a nice mug of this cocktail, you need to come back around and have a taste of this rum as is, just in a glass.
Or maybe you need a floater on top…either way, make sure you try it separately also to taste the amazing, spiced flavor!
