Hey Everyone! Very glad that my little warm drink fit the bill!
Since several people asked, here's the recipe:
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 1 Punchbowl (16-4 oz servings)
1 quart water
3 orange spice tea bags (I used Celestial Seasonsings Tangerine Orange Zinger Herbal Tea - Caffeine Free - found at the grocery store)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups Rum (I used Bacardi Select Dark, I added more at the end)
8 cinnamon sticks
3 teaspoons butter (1 tablespoon)
Combine all ingredients in a large pot or kettle.
Heat to a simmer on the stove, stirring well at first.
Cover and continue simmering for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve by ladling into heated Irish coffee glasses or mugs.
