This Maple Spiced Rum Punch is sweetened naturally with pure maple syrup and 100% juice. It has a classic foamy head and a bit of sparkle from seltzer water. The juice is infused with warming spices so it is the perfect Holiday drink!

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 ½ cup dark rum
  • ¾ cup pure unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup, dark or amber
  • 1 liter cranberry or black cherry seltzer chilled
