Sweet and Spicy Apple Cider


A blend of spices makes this a very flavorful cider, not to mention the rum and the schnapps. A good recipe for using plain store-bought cider.


  • 7 cups apple cider
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tsp allspice, whole
  • 1 tsp cloves, whole
  • 1 tbs minced lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups rum (dark)
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch Schnapps


Tie the loose spices into a piece of cheesecloth, and add to the cider and sugar in a large saucepan. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Continue simmering for another 15 minutes. Take out the spice bag, and add rum and Schnapps. Stir and serve warm. Will serve around 10 people.
