Spiced Apple Cider
cinnamon sticks and apple slices to garnish
In a small pot heat the apple juice, spices and rum (if using) over low/medium heat. Stir often while the mixture is heating so the spices will blend into the juice (you don't want any spice clumps).
Once it's hot pour into two mugs and garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks. Serve warm.
