We all know that the star of the show during Thanksgiving is the turkey...and even some of the sides, but no one pays no mind to the drinks that are served...and I'm not talking about a can of pop or juice...
Therefore I am going to share a recipe with you guys for delicious cider with a twist. 
I am definitely going to give this one a try this weekend and I am sure it will be a hit.


Warm Cider & Rum Punch
For a fun and festive holiday gathering, make this crowd-pleasing spiked punch.
Everyday Food, December 2010

Yield: Serves 10

8 cups apple cider
1 apple, thinly sliced crosswise
1 orange, thinly sliced crosswise
2 cinnamon sticks
1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
2 cups dark rum

In a large pot, combine apple cider, apple slices, orange sliced, cinnamon sticks, and ginger. Bring to a boil over high; reduce to a simmer and cook 5 minutes. {Keep warm over low, up to 2 hours.}
Remove from heat and stir in rum. Transfer to a punch bowl; serve warm. 

I am sure that this spiked drink is going to be raved about at your next festive gathering. 
I am sure it will be this weekend for Thanksgiving!
