If you’re like us, you’ve still got holiday-brain this week.  So instead of fighting the productivity slump, we’re embracing it with a mouth-watering cocktail recipe today.  My hot buttered rum cider will warm you from the inside out, I tell you!  Now you’ve just got to count the hours until 5 o’clock to try it at home. 

Hot, buttered rum cider.  I knew from the second I heard the words together that it would be a truly decadent sip.   And since making it, I’ve decided that a glass of this is my new favorite fight to the winter blues; it’s warm, bright and creamy and it goes down really easy (almost too easy).  I’ve professed my love for boozy apple cider before, and this one has the added bonus of creamy butter and brown sugar, along with a sprinkle of salt, a squeeze of fresh lemon and a pinch of cinnamon that rounds out the rich flavors. It’s quite simply perfectly balanced. 

See the full recipe before, but all you’ll need to do is bring apple cider to a simmer and stir in unsalted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.  And to serve, simply pour the warm, buttered cider into individual glasses, and top each with dark rum and a squeeze of fresh lemon for that needed acidity.  Garnish with cinnamon stick to serve.  Cheers, friends!  Truly, MKR

    This looks delicious, however, I despise lemon. What could I use instead for the acidity?

  • This sounds INCREDIBLE. I run a horsebox bar and go to lots of Christmas Markets selling mulled wine and cider..this is definitely getting added to the menu!! x
