Ingredients

Spiced Simple Syrup:

Directions

  1. To assemble the mandarin boats, hollow out both halves of the mandarins. Flip each half inside out so the bight orange side is on the inside.
  2. To make each cocktail: In each of 4 lowball glasses, stir together 1/4 cup of the apple cider and 1 tablespoon of the Spiced Simple Syrup. Top with a mandarin half, hollow side facing up. Add 1 of the sugar cubes and 1 ounce of the high-proof rum to each mandarin. Light on fire and sprinkle with ground cinnamon to create fireworks. Serve immediately.

Spiced Simple Syrup:
