Oh yeah! Rita is ready for New Year's!


Yardboy and Joe, this is the perfect warm drink to offer guests during the holidays. Especially nice for a New Year’s Eve Buffet! Of course, the “spirits” are optional but…..

EASY HOT BUTTERED CIDER WITH “SPIRITS”

Half gallon apple cider (I like organic)

6 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed

Cinnamon to taste - start with a teaspoon or 2

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Calvados (apple brandy) or rum (opt)

Simmer cider on stove and add everything. Let cook a few minutes after butter melts. To serve, pour in a shot of brandy. Serve warm with a cinnamon stick for a stirrer, if desired.

TIP:Keep warm in a crockpot on low for several hours. To serve the little ones, omit alcohol.
