Default Rum/ Water mix over flowed into my carboy?

I finished putting my cider in my carboy and I put my airlock on and filled it up. Apparently I put a little too much Rum/water mix in the airlock and it over flowed into my cider. Is my cider ruined? It wasnt too much, probally a few ounces.

Completely trashed, Ruined. Kaput. Probably a chemical reaction now forming that will cause the whole thing to explode and destroy your entire neighborhood. Hundreds will be dead. Run! RUN! RUN!







Or not. It's fine

Free ABV boost!!!!!!! That's why we don't pee into airlocks.

Sometimes, for aroma.
