This delicious hot cider drink has its roots in an ancient British tradition of toasting to the health of apple trees to ensure a good crop the following year—a worthy reason to raise a glass.
In a large stockpot over low heat, combine cider, juice, spices, fruit, and sugar; simmer 1-½–2 hours.
Remove from heat. Strain and discard solids and return liquid to pot. Add wine and rum and return to heat to warm through. Ladle into mugs and serve.
