Shanny's Hot Buttered Rum Apple Cider

Okay, so we went over to Shanny's house to fold wedding programs for Molly. When we got there, Shanny had this AMAZING apple cider!!! She got the recipe from her sweet friend, Stacy Grundfest. Once you read the recipe, you'll know why it's so good....one word...BUTTER!!!
1 cup butter
1 1/3 cups light brown sugar
6 Tbs. honey
6 oz. Rum
2 tsp. each of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla
Spiced Apple Cider
Cream butter. Mix in sugar and then add vanilla, spices, honey, and rum. Mixture will refrigerate indefinitely. When ready to use, add one heaping tablespoon (we added 2) of mixture and one jigger of rum (optional...we didn't do this...and by the way, what's a jigger?) to each cup of hot apple cider.

Shanny (my sister) used Aspen cider spices for her apple cider. I think she got it at the Hallmark store.

Here's the SCRUMPTIOUS mixture that you add to the cider. AMAZINGLY delicious!!!

And here we all are holding our cups of cider.
It was so crazy, I had a full cup of apple cider sitting on the table. After we took the group picture, I started to sip on my cider and realized it was completely empty!! Somebody took my cup sitting on the table and downed my apple cider in about 1 minute flat!!! HA! :) I don't blame them...it was THAT good!!!
