Tipsy Tuesday: Hot Spiced Rum Cider
I hope you’re all getting into the fall spirit! I have been soaking in the cool evenings and colourful changing leaves- I forgot how much I love fall.
One of those fall experiences that I have been definitely been taking advantage of is apple picking. And the last time I was out apple picking I picked up some apple cider- for some hot spiced rum cider! mmm
This is absolutely one of the most seasonal, most delicious and most downright simple drinks you can possibly make 🙂 and I love it.
To make this spiced cider all you need is some delicious apple cider, some chai or otherwise spiced tea (can be herbal), cinnamon sticks (which you can use to steep or just to garnish), and of course some rum!
For about 3 drinks I took 4 cups of cider and put it in a saucepan over the stove on medium-high heat. Then I took 2 tea bags and let them steep in the cider (you could also put in a cinnamon stick for extra cinnamon flavour). Heat the cider up until it’s steaming and hot, but not boiling. Stir it around a bit infusing the spices! I did this for about 10 minutes.
Measure you’re chosen amount of rum into your favourite mug- this amount will vary depending on how cold it is, how many exams you have coming up, or how many relatives are visiting your house. For hanging out with friends I opted for about 1 1/2 ounces.
Then ladle your hot spiced cider over your rum, and into your favourite glass, possibly with a cinnamon stick to make it look festive!
So simple, so tasty, so fall appropriate!
Definitely one of my favourite things right now!
How are you enjoying the fall season? Do you have any favourite drinks to warm up with?
Hope you’re having a very Tipsy Tuesday!
