The overturned bottle slowly drips into the glass, mingling with the salted caramel frosting and chocolaty Coke cake. It's actually really simple to make, but the presentation has a wow factor that's hard to forget.

It's the perfect boozy adult treat, for parties or just for nights when you feel like indulging. And you can choose your favorite kind of rum, though spiced, gold or even coconut rum sound the best to me. Either way, I think we can all agree that this is one boozy treat that's a must-try.
