Recipe Recommendation: Hot Buttered Bourbon and Cider

I grew up drinking Mexican hot cocoa on Christmas eve, but an allergy to chocolate forced me to seek a different beverage tradition. Enter my new, grown-up favorite: hot buttered bourbon and cider.

A twist on the more common hot buttered rum, this bourbon and apple cider recipe is warming, sweet, spicy, and oh so decadent. Not only has it become a personal favorite, but it always has our holiday party guests clamoring for a second – or third! – mug and the recipe.
