Spiked Apple Cider

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, apparently a way to a man’s heart is through booze.

My man has been asking me to make him rum apple cider ever since the weather got cooler. I’m not a big apple cider kinda gal so I never had a burning desire to make it, but I knew I could figure it out.

With a little help from a friend, I made this fancy spiked cider.

Spiked Apple Cider 


  • 2 cups apple cider (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 4-5 orange slices
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1-1/2 cups rum (any kind you like)


On medium to low heat combine the apple cider, pumpkin pie spice, and orange slices until heated through (about 5-10 minutes). Add the rum. Ladle hot cider into mugs and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

We curled up on the couch with this warm, cozy cocktail and slept very well that night. :)
