Oh so goooood! Nice and sweet, but not too much. I used Captain Morgan spiced rum. I also mixed red and green apples for a Christmas-y look. I have been asked to make this for our Christmas dinner this year. Awesome! Made and Reviewed for ANZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap - Thanks! :)

Sooo sooo good Lainey. I enjoyed this tasty cider very much. It was hot, warm, rich, spicy, sweet, mellow, smooth and comforting. All the flavors blend together beautifully to create a jewel of a drink, which I will enjoy often. Thank you so much for sharing.
