Easy Apple Cider with Spiced Rum Recipe

It seems like with the first Christmas tree you see in the department stores, the holiday stress is already mounting. So, to savor this beautiful time of year, my brother and I came up with this delicious spiked apple cider recipe. It is easy. Really. Most cider recipes call for several ingredients and involve cooking or straining--and they are good--I just never have time to do it. But this recipe is different. You only have 4 ingredients, then you heat and serve. It makes you want to curl up on the couch and take a moment to think about all the things for which you are thankful.

But here's the best part: you can make it individually to enjoy any night of the week. The ratios can also be adjusted to share with a crowd at a holiday party. Enjoy responsibly!

Note: Don't go crazy on the hot damn! Too much could really overpower the other flavors.
