This tastes so good. I'm sipping it right now... I didn't add the whiskey only the spiced rum. I used Capt. Morgan and I also added 4 packets of Alpine instant spiced apple cidar to the brew. I followed everything else in this recipe as written. I served it cold over ice. This is very yummy you can't even taste the alcohol be careful not to get too drunk it will catch up to you lol.

This was tasty but a little too sweet. A cup or two at most was enough. We halved the recipe and still couldn't finish it because it is so sweet. Good though if you're just planning on one sweet drink. Read More

keeper! Only change I had made was to use Applejack brandy instead of whiskey. It's what I had on hand and it seemed like it would go well with the apple theme. I tried this with few variations in small batches. It is better warm than cold and it is better with apple cider instead of apple juice. Read More

YUMMY! Made this to keep me warm while watching the husbands play in their annual "Turkey Bowl" - the guys enjoyed it after the game once they heard what it was loaded with: ) I cut back on the brown sugar and used diet ginger ale - I see many batches of this in my holiday party future... Read More

I recently had a party in January and had this ready for my guests when they arrived it was a big hit! The only change I made was in adding an extra cinnamon stick. Read More

A friend was looking for a warm drink to bring to a shrimp boil we were attending. I suggested allrecipes and she found this wonderful drink. It kept us nice and tosty from the inside out while we bundled up by the bonfire watching the game projected on the side of the house. I can't wait to make it for myself. Read More

A perfect winter drink! I do not add the alcohol to the mix after its done simmering. I add it to the individual servings which allows it to be served to those who don't drink alcohol as well. Even though I find myself adding rum to just about every cup I serve.;) Read More
