Welcome to day two of The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas!
Today I’m going to showcase a very classic winter drink – Mulled Cider. It’s filled with warm spices, hints of lemon and of course a little booze 🙂 Spiced rum to be exact. Nothing wrong with that in my book!
This recipe is enough to serve eight guests or to have one drunk night by yourself 🙂
