Rhum Apple-Cranberry Cider Recipe

Happy New Year…. It’s time to get use to writing the year 2013. Where did the time go?  I hope it’s been a good year for everyone and it continues into the New Year…. It’s been a cold December and it has not warmed up yet in January. It’s time to enjoy a glass of spiked cider.  The recipe below can be enjoyed as a nonalcoholic beverage. Here is my Rhum Apple Cranberry Cider Recipe.


Apple Cranberry Cider Recipe:


  • 2 quarts (8 cups) Apple juice
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • ½ cup Pure Maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Cloves
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ginger
  • 3 Cinnamon sticks


Pour juice into a tall pot with a lid and turn on heat to high. Prepare spices and add to pot. When pot reaches a boil, turn to the lowest setting. Let simmer about 15 minutes. Strain the cider through a fine sieve onto a second pot. Return cider to heat source or pour into a crock pot to keep warm. Ladle into mugs and enjoy.

When picking out apple juice, read the label and try to get juice without added sugar – often called “apple cider” instead of “apple juice” by some companies. Unfiltered juice (which looks a little foggy) is our favorite when we can find it.


Rhum Apple-Cranberry Cider recipe:

  • 1½ oz. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum
  • 5 oz. Apple-Cranberry Cider


In a footed mug or mug add ingredients. Garnish with a thin slice of lemon peel. The garnish will also add a hint of citrus to the taste and aroma.
