Mix It Up: Cider Rum Punch

Here in Upstate New York, many of us are pretty hardcore apple cider junkies this time of year. The good, fresh, local stuff that basically tastes like heaven on earth. Different variations of spiked cider concoctions pop up everywhere for holiday celebrations, giving a childhood favorite a decidedly grown-up twist. Apple cider definitely pairs best with rum, although I have to admit to not being a huge fan of rum. That said, Kraken Rum is kind of changing that for me so I definitely suggest a high quality spiced rum for this cider rum punch. This is perfect for mixing up a big pitcher before guests arrive and sipping while the turkey finishes roasting!

Thanks so much for the link! Hope you like it as much as I do. But in case you’d prefer a non-rum based cider drink, I made this for another blog I’m part of and the base is bourbon! http://theboysclub.net/mike/the-bourbon-bomber (thanks again!!)

Yum. Trying this tonight. You know we have plenty of Kraken in our house! I always keep a backup bottle ; )
