Dumbledore: "...but now I think I'll have a nice cup of tea, or a large brandy..." Hagrid: "You'll find no small glasses in this house."
Today we kick off our celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week! From teaching us to fly to providing sanctuary while we barf up slugs, no one has taught us more than the professors at Hogwarts.
Our first honorary professor of the week is Rubeus Hagrid, Professor of Care of Magical Creatures and Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts. This umbrella wielding giant told us we were wizards on our eleventh birthday and began our journey into the wizarding world.
In a small to medium saucepan, gently simmer 2 cups of apple cider with 1 tbs of mulling spices for up to 20 minutes.
Remove the spices from the cider and pour into a mug - add 1/3 cup (or more) rum.
Optional: add sliced apples and/or oranges or chill and serve over ice!
2 cups of mulled cider
