"This is a great beverage for cold afternoons and evenings created by my husband. The name comes from our next door neighbor, who says it makes him feel warm and fuzzy when he drinks it! It also makes your house smell fabulous while it is simmering on the stove!"

Pretty good. I have been wanting to try EGRIVNER's twisted cider, but because my grocery store didn't have cinnamon schnapps, I defaulted to this recipe instead (the butterscotch schnaps, which I LOVE, intrigued me). While I like this, I too feel that the rum overpowers everything else. I even cut the amount called for by 1/2 cup (I upped the schnapps by 1/2 to compensate). Perhaps spiced rum or a lighter rum would be better???? Regardless, this was good, and is something that I'd make again if I were craving a "grown up" drink. My fiance and I sure enjoyed our cider and s'mores! :-) Thanks for sharing, Keri. Danny sure was right!

I served this at a neighborhood open house after trick-or-treating and everyone loved it! I even forgot to add the brown sugar but everyone said it was great without. I used cider fresh from a local apple farm - I'm sure that made a difference. Enjoy!

I didnt have "whole" spices so I subbed ground for all of them...still delicious & perfect for this time of year!!!

I don't generally like cider, but was asked to bring some for a party last night. It was outstanding, and even I enjoyed it. The large amount of alcohol worried me that it was going to be too sharp, but I couldn't taste it at all. The guests and host loved it, and it looks like I'll be bringing this every year. :)

I loved this recipe. I made it for a party and my friends loved it. One thing though, I would cut down on the Rum and only use 1 cup of it instead of 1 1/2 cups. Then I made it, minus the alcohol, for my son's class (Christmas Party) and it was a huge hit. The kids told me it was the best apple cider that they had ever had and the teacher asked me for the recipe.

Yummm! This got rave reviews at a harvest festival. One guest described it as "boozy apple pie." So delicious! I used fresh-pressed cider and omitted the brown sugar, as I always find good cider to be plenty sweet already.
