Put the apple juice, ginger, star anise and cinnamon stick in a pan over a medium heat, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, add the rum or whisky, if using, and leave to cook for 3 minutes to let the flavours develop. Strain the mixture into mugs, picking out the star anise and adding to the mugs also, then serve warm.
