- ½ gallon good-quality apple cider
- 1 cup Laird’s applejack
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 6 whole allspice berries
- 6 whole cloves
- 2-4 tablespoons Gosling’s Rum, or to taste
Add apple cider, applejack, honey, fresh ginger, cinnamon, allspice berries and cloves to a pot or large saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally, until the liquid barely reaches a simmer.
Simmer the liquid, lowering the heat if necessary, for 5 minutes. Add rum and cook for an additional minute. Remove from heat and serve, removing spices if desired.
