I've tried several spiced cider and hot buttered rum recipes over the past few winters - this one is by far the easiest and ultimately my favorite in terms of flavor and aesthetics. The whole house smelled divine, the clove studded orange made for a fun presentation and all who tried it ladled out a second (or third) serving. I used Myers Dark rum and added additional cider, rum and just a little more butter throughout the evening. I found it helpful to use a small round wire mesh sieve to pour through as the cloves and/or cinnamon sticks began to break down and created a bit of residue after a couple of hours.

Wonderful, rich, warm and comforting - great to relax at the end of a long day. The butter gave this cider a whole new dimension and the orange and spices were a perfect match. This is a wonderful treat - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Comfort Cafe event, January 2009

This is just lovely. I've made spiced cider with rum lots of times, but this is the first time I've added butter and a clove-studded orange. This was only 3 servings for us though - I guess we needed extra warming up! Thanks for posting.
