Co-owner of Louisburg Cider Mill, Alexis Hebert details how to make hot buttered Louisburg apple cider with rum just in time for fall gatherings.
Hot Buttered Louisburg Apple Cider With Rum:
Half-gallon Louisburg apple cider
1 stick salted butter (substitute 1/2 c. Coconut Oil for vegan version)
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons Louisburg Cider Mill Cider Spices (ingredients: cinnamon bark, allspice, cloves, orange peel)
Louisburg Cider Mill Cinnamon sticks
Bring the apple cider to a simmer over medium heat in a large pot, then turn the heat down to low. Stir in the butter and brown sugar. Place the Louisburg Cider Mill Cider Spices in a tea ball or coffee filter with a twist tie and place in the pot. Continue stirring until the butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved.
Ladle the buttered cider into mugs. Top each drink off with a shot of rum and garnish with a Louisburg Cider Mill cinnamon stick. Serve hot.
