Apple Pie Grog

  • Add the butter to a heat proof glass mug.
  • Add the rum, schnapps, and vodkas
  • Carefully pour in the hot apple cider

You can cut back significantly on the calories by substituting fat free half and half for the cream and leaving off the whipped cream but the flavor will suffer. It's the holidays! Just don't over do it.
