Delicious and comforting spiced hot rum punch, by-the-mug!

Top Review by PanNan

I loved this warm and comforting drink. The flavors all worked very well together. I have a cold and this really hit the spot. In fact, I had it two nights in a row! One note of caution, though - for many microwaves 2 1/2 minutes on High will cause a boil over (my first one did). 1 minute and 45 seconds was plenty in mine. Thanks for posting.

  1. Into a microwave safe mug, pour the apple cider, orange juice and the rum.
  2. Stir in the sugar and add the cinnamon stick and clove.
  3. Heat in microwave on HIGH setting for 2 1/2* minutes (*please note: use caution here, as all microwaves are different- - your drink may be hot in only one minute!), until hot.
  4. Remove the spices and discard.
  5. Serve hot with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and an orange slice for garnish.
