Here’s a warm cocktail recipe that’s perfect for sipping during
the holidays:

Hot Buttered Bourbon

Serves 1

  • 1 cup spiced apple cider (such as Big B’s Organic Spiced Apple Cider)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon packed brown sugar (use either light or dark –
    your preference)
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsalted butter (or more to taste)

Combine the cider, water and brown sugar in a small saucepan and gently warm on the stove to just simmering – make sure the sugar has dissolved.  Pour cider mixture into a mug, squeeze in the lemon wedge and add the bourbon and butter.  Garnish with a cinnamon stick if desired.  Stir gently and enjoy.
