I put the cider into my slow cooker, mixed the brown sugar with softened butter in a separate bowl, and added two tablespoons of the butter/sugar mixture per 9 ounce mug along with the 2 tblsp of rum. I'm not a big drinker (had to dust off the rum bottle) and thought the amount of alcohol was just right. This will be at any gathering at my home during cold weather.
