What you’ll need to make this recipe

  • Frozen Berries
  • Sugar or syrup– granulated sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, beet sugar or agave syrup.
  • Spice Rum– I use Stroh rum in this recipe. If you do not have Stroh rum I highly recommend trying it. Any spiced rum will be tasty in this recipe. I would steer away from using white rum due to it not having the same fragrance and pizazz that a spice rum possesses.
  • Rum essence for a non alcoholic version.
  • Mulling spice or spice blend of your choice if you are not using a spice rum.

Fun Fact

Stroh Rum

Stroh rum is manufactured by an Austrian spirit company named Stroh Austria Gmbh. It has been in production since 1832 and was formulated and created by Sebastian Stroh.

Known as “the spirit of Austria” Stroh Inlander rum is best when used for cocktails, desserts and savoury recipes. The warmly spiced notes lend to its distinct and delicious flavour. The European Union has very strict rules with ingredients, fermentation, production and marketing. This is to prevent fraud or imitation. For that reason Stroh rum is a geographically protected product in their designation by the European Union’s regulation 110/2008 Annex III.

I am not receiving any compensation for mentioning this company. It is a product that I enjoy using in my culinary creations.

Stroh has three varieties of rum:
Stroh 40: It is recommended that you use this variety in warm drinks such as mulled cider and cocktails.
Stroh 60: With this particular variety the Stroh company recommends that you use 60 for jams, chutneys or jellies. Always included for cocktails and the classic rum pot(Rumtopf).
Stroh 80: This is the original “Inlander rum”. It is no longer in production, however if you have it, it is considered a collectors item. If you want to use this variety in your recipes the Stroh rum company suggests that you use this original variety to make cakes, pastries, desserts and always to make aromatically delicious cocktails.

  3. Next, gently stir once or twice. After stirring the berries let them do their thing undisturbed in the pot. This will ensure that they maintain their shape and don’t fall apart.
  4. Then lower the heat to medium low and cook until reduced. Five more minutes.
  5. Turn the heat off and let the berries sit for 5–6 minutes.

  6. For an extra kick in flavour, add 1 tablespoon of spiced rum or liqueur of choice at the end of the cooking process.
  7. Serve warm or cold over ice cream, frozen yogurt, angel food cake or scones with a dollop of crème fraîche. 
  8. Your dessert is ready to enjoy!


Q: Do fresh berries work in this recipe?
A: Yes they do. Add all of the ingredients in the pot and reduce the amount of time by about 5 minutes. The texture of the berries will also be different than if you use frozen berries.

Q: Is there another liqueur that I can use as a substitute?
A: Definitely. The options are almost limitless. Any fruity flavoured liqueur like orange, cherry, lemon, or black raspberry would be a delicious alternative. *If you use liqueur as a substitute, omit the sugar in the recipe.
