Hot Buttered Apple Cider Rum

I know what you're thinking "Butter in a drink?  Where is Paula Deen?"

Well the truth is she inspired this one.  After I saw her cinnamon candy sticks and melting butter pads in this recipe from an old Food Network Magazine  I had to come up with my own version. 


Mine is a bit stronger because I added butterscotch schnapps for a caramel flavor as well.

Soon I will be carving pumpkins with friends on our deck at the beach house with the sound of cold, autumn ocean waves behind me.

And how about drinking these hot toddy's on top of the widows watch while star gazing at night? Yes, I think that will do just fine ... Doesn't Halloween at the beach sound magical?


I might head over to Party City on my lunch break tomorrow and pick up some fake cobwebs and orange blinking lights for the house.

Counting down the days.


Shopping List (makes about 3 cups, depending on mug size)
2 cups apple cider
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter and 3 thin butter pads
1/2 cup of rum
1/2 cup butterscotch schnapps

Warm up your cider in a sauce pan until very hot, turn heat to low and add your sugar and butter. When butter has melted pour in your rum and schnapps and stir.

Serve in mugs with a cinnamon candy or green apple candy stick and top with a pad of butter.

Drink responsibly, this is a strong toddy.
