Hot Buttered Apple Cider
Once Upon a Chef gives us a delicious version of hot apple cider. The rich buttery taste and splash of rum will keep you warm during those cool winter nights.
So I found a way to take it up a notch by combining ordinary spiked cider with a classic holiday cocktail – hot buttered rum. Boy, was that a good idea! If hot cider is delicious, then hot buttered cider is downright decadent (a little booze doesn’t hurt either).
It's ideal for a crowd because it sits on the stove in a big pot for everyone to help themselves. Plus, you can do most of it ahead of time. When you're ready to serve, all you have to do is warm your apple cider in a pot, stir in your spiced butter, ladle it into mugs and – if you want – top with rum.
