Spiked Mulled Cider | Fall Entertaining | Fall Cocktails

This seems like the right kind of drink for the first day of October!  Right now I'm sitting on our porch drinking a big mug of hot apple cider this morning... but I love this cocktail recipe for a party.  Wouldn't you love to be sitting outside tonight with a hot cup of cider that is spiked with spiced rum, vanilla and orange?  Count me in.
Spiked Mulled Cider
to warm you from the inside

1 gallon of apple cider or juice
2 cups of spiced rum
1 cup of Mulling Spices*
1 vanilla bean
1 orange, sliced
1 teaspoon of ground clove
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
Cinnamon Sticks, Star Anise and Cloves for Garnish

Put all ingredients into a large pot on your stove and simmer on low.  Serve warm. 

*If you'd like to make your own Mulling Spices, combine whole cloves, star anise, and allspice, OR you can buy it from Williams-Sonoma : Williams-Sonoma Mulling Spices (makes a great gift, too!)

    Where oh where did you find the darling good manners napkins? They would make the perfect baby shower gift. Thank you.

  5. Hi Jenny! Would you mind telling me what brand your glasses are? I'm searching for some new ones and they look just like what we need. Classic and casual and I'm always a sucker for a high ball. Thanks so much!
