Place 4 mugs in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to get nice and frosty.
In a pitcher, stir together 3 1/4 cups apple cider and the cranberry juice. (Reserve the remaining cider for Round 2 Recipe German Dumpling Soup and Online Round 2 Recipe Cabbage and Pear Slaw) Pour into the chilled mugs and top with the sparkling water.
Add 1 ounce spiced rum to each drink if desired.
