The cocktail costs around £2.18 to create per serve and retailed at £9 each.
Bachelier said: “This is essentially a fruity daiquiri. We enjoy making super tasty and simple cordials, and then pairing them with a spirit.
“Though you can strain the [cordial] through a filter before adding the sugar and acids, we opted not to so as to keep a bit of texture, like you would have with a fresh smoothie.
“[With this] we have taken two great flavours that work well together: tart kiwi and apples; and paired them with tasty rum. What makes this drink great is its simplicity.”
