I’ve been asked for this recipe a couple of times lately….I thought the recipe was already on my blog, but apparently I’d posted it on an old blog that I don’t use anymore. So here it is!
This absolutely delicious drink makes frequent appearances at our Autumn dinners. I usually quadruple the recipe and heat the cider and vodka in a crockpot. Its got just the right amount of booze to give you that warm glow, but not so much booze that it gets to your head.
Now, don’t go and screw this drink up by using store-bought whipped topping. I’m so serious. Make your own whipped cream.. it’s not hard to make… and the little bit of rum…. Oh! So good. Trust me.
Hot Apple Pie Cider
- 3 c Apple Cider
- ¼ c Honey Whiskey or Cake Vodka
- ½ c Butter, softened
- ¼ c Light Brown Sugar, packed
- 1 tsp Nutmeg
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Ground Cloves
- 2 tsp Rum
- 2 c Heavy Whipping Cream
- 3 Tbsp Powdered Sugar
Heat the apple cider and whiskey (or vodka) in a small saucepan until warm. (You can also make a larger batch in a crockpot.)
Combine softened butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Whip until butter becomes creamy and the ingredients are fully incorporated. Chill.
In a separate bowl combine rum and whipping cream, whisk until fluffy; add powdered sugar.
In a pretty footed coffee glass, place a spoonful of spiced butter. Ladle the hot cider to fill the glass. Garnish with a dollop of rum-whipped topping. Serve warm.
