Spiced Cider Punch

Julie Grice
This cider punch can be made in advance and kept warm in a slow cooker for a long cocktail party or dinner party. To make it kid-friendly, add two tablespoons each of rum and applejack to each adult’s mug just before serving, instead of stirring all the alcohol into the cider. Look for a cider that is made solely of pressed fruit, with no additives or sweetener.
