You can serve this two ways, with or without the rum. Either way, give this a full 30 minutes to steep so the flavor has plenty of time to infuse. If you don't have cheesecloth to hold the whole allspice berries and cloves, skim them off or strain the cider before serving. The star anise pods floating on the surface are a fitting holiday touch.
6 cups apple cider
2 cups cranberry juice
1/4 cup golden brown sugar
4 allspice berries
4 whole cloves
6 star anise pods, plus a few extra for garnish
2 cinnamon sticks
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups dark rum (optional)
