Apple cider

For a Thanksgiving Eve I am preparing a little gathering. I thought of doing hot mulled cider and would like to add a little "something" to it for the grown ups. Any suggestions?

A little rum might be nice.

For grown ups do not add anything that is "a little" add a lot. I also think rum will be nice.

Keeping with the apple nature of the drink, might include an apple brandy.

Just a thought.

Rum was my first thought as well, but apple brandy is a great suggestion.

I might even do a spiced rum.

Hi. I like to put a bottle each of cinnamon schnapps and applejack brandy next to the crockpot with the cider, so people can add either, both, or neither as they like.
