Hot Buttered Mulled Cider

We had a cold and rainy weekend in LA and I was soaking it in as much as I could. I love rainy weekends here since we don’t get them very often. The malls were full of people and Christmas decorations already! Zan and I went to Santa Barbara one day to eat at a cozy, little restaurant called Cold Spring Tavern. We sat in a room right next to a picture-perfect fireplace… It was cozy and peaceful, just what we needed. I’ve also been waiting for the perfect evening to make some hot-buttered mulled cider and there wasn’t a better weekend than this one ; ) This cider is easy to make and very tasty! The melted butter adds a rich butterscotch taste and creamy texture. I could drink a glass of this every rainy day this winter. It makes the house smell delicious too!


Hot Buttered Mulled Cider 


Recipe (makes enough for three people)
4 cups apple cider or a rich apple juice


1/4 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice


3 whole cinnamon sticks
4-6 whole cloves
2 oz Dark Rum per drink if you want : )


Combine all of the ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer on the stove for about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve equally between the glasses and make sure each mug gets a cinnamon stick! Cut a 1/2 of a tablespoon butter and place on top of the cider. It will warm your heart : ) Enjoy!
