  • In a small saucepan, combine the cider, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and ginger and place over low heat.
  • Cook at a simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the bourbon and bring back to a simmer; immediately remove from the heat.
  • Pour into 2 warmed mugs and top each with a slice of Nutmeg Butter.
  • NUTMEG BUTTER (makes about 16 servings):
  • Put all ingredients in a small bowl and stir with a rubber spatula to combine.
  • Place the butter mixture on a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap and shape into a log about the size of the original stick of butter.
  • Chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes, until firm but not frozen hard.
  • Slice into 1/4-inch rounds (about 1/2 teaspoon) to use in buttered drinks.
  • The butter will keep, frozen and tightly wrapped for at least a month; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before slicing it. It will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
