Hot Spiked Cider

With apples in season and Thanksgiving on the brain, it's the time of year for cider. While I ran on the treadmill at the gym yesterday I noticed that the commercial spots in between Oprah segments were filled with wintery ads. There was snow, sledding, lights, trees and shopping deals. I am already beginning to feel like the holidays will fly by much too fast this year, so this is a drink that can help you to just relax and take all of it in, if only for a few minutes.

Hot Spiked Cider
6 oz Apple Cider
1 oz Rum
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon

In a saucepan, heat the cider on high heat for about 4 minutes, or until hot but not boiling. Add cinnamon and stir, then add rum and heat for another 30 seconds. Pour into your favorite mug and relax!
