Drinks on Me: Warm Spiked Apple Cider (Alcoholic)

[ 0 ] January 13, 2010 |

Warm Spiked Apple Cider

2 cups fresh apple cider
4 cinnamon sticks
2 cloves
1-1/2 cups white rum
2 cinnamon sticks (for garnish)

Heat apple cider in a saucepan over medium heat. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves and rum and stir occasionally. When cider is heated, remove cinnamon sticks and cloves with a slotted spoon. Pour cider into mugs and add a cinnamon stick in each mug to stir drink. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Warm beverages are not just a want right now, they are a necessity. Thoughts of anything warm i.e. hearty soups, hot teas, etc. fill our head. As we brace ourselves for the strong winds and freezing temperatures, knowing that a cup of warm apple cider is at the other end of the tunnel offers total comfort. Especially when its spiked;-)
