My friend Amanda shared this recipe with me years ago and I’ve made this drink every fall ever since. It is such a wonderful drink because it gives the comfort of a nice cup of coffee while relaxing you like a wonderful cocktail. Being pregnant this year I simply made mine without the rum and it was as delicious as ever.
This is a wonderful drink to make when you want to entertain. Pair it with some pumpkin muffins or better yet a pumpkin pie. Your friends will appreciate the effort and you’ll feel like a magnificent hostess.
4 cups of apple cider
½ cup dark rum
½ cup light rum
1 sliced orange
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon of allspice
Add the apple cider, sliced orange, cinnamon stick and allspice into a medium to large pot. Allow the mixture to come to a boil for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. At the last 5 minutes add both rums. For a stronger drink, don’t add the rum to the pot. You can add both rums to a mug and fill mug with apple cider mixture before serving.
Share the rum with your friends; it tastes better when enjoyed with friends.
