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 🙂
