A little cardamon, cloves, and allspice bring out the best in this rum punch

In this recipe, dark rum, exotic spices, and delicious apple cider come together to create a punch that will keep you and your guests warm all night long.

Hot Apple Cider With Rum

The spices and rum are perfect compliments to fresh pressed apple cider

A good white rum will work just fine, if that’s all you have in the house, but do make sure to use a good fresh pressed apple cider and that there’s no added sugar in it.
