Hot Buttered Rum Apple Cider


This is the kind of drink that warms you from the inside out. It scales down easily, making it a nice evening treat when you’re not entertaining, and the rum can be omitted for little ones.

Serves 8 to 10


6 oz. (12 Tbs.) unsalted butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla paste or extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

Kosher salt

1-1/2 quarts apple cider

1-1/2 to 2 cups gold rum, such as Bacardi Gold; more to taste

8 to 10 long cinnamon sticks

whipped cream, for serving (optional)



In a medium bowl, mash the butter, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt together with a fork.

Bring the apple cider to a simmer in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat.


Pour 3 Tbs. of rum into each of 8 to 10 Irish coffee mugs (or similar).

Distribute the cider among the mugs (about 1/3 to 1/2 cup each).

Stir about 1 Tbs. of the spiced butter into each

(there will be extra) and add a cinnamon stick.

Dollop with whipped cream, if using, and serve.


Tips: The flavored butter can be made up to 1 week ahead; refrigerate and return to room temperature before using.
