This was pure Heaven! I had never tasted hot apple cider and thought I would give this recipe a shot. It looked very simple to make and I was extremely pleased with just how simple it truly was. My husband tried it and has now made a rule to always keep this beverage on our menu, regardless of the weather! Thank you so much, Karen. You've made my husband and I a couple of apple cider addicts! :)

The spices made the drink taste wonderful! However, since the butter and the cider don't mix, the butter just floated on the top of the cider. It didn't taste that good to drink in a sip of cider and get a mouthful of butter. It coats your mouth and doesn't blend well with the cider. I would omit the butter and just use the spices if I make this recipe again. Also, I didn't use the maple syrup because I don't like to drink super sweet drinks.

This was terrific. Just what I need, more calories to the cider! Yummmmm

This is the first time I had ever made my own hot cider, and it was great...with the exception that I wouldn't use the spiced butter. I agree with the comment left at 10/22/2002 that the spiced butter really doesn't do anything for the drink, but maybe only the spices could be used next time. Other than that, it was really nice for my first!

This is some tasty stuff! I totally reworked prep though. I cut the recipe in half and combined the maple syrup and apple cider in a glass pyrex dish, and microwaved it for 1 minute. I couldn't understand the benefit of lugging out the slow cooker and waiting 20 minutes for it to warm up. Then, I just took a pat of butter, topped the drink with it,and sprinkled in allspice, nutmeg, and a heavy dash of cinnamon. Yum yum yum.
