Hot Buttered Whiskey Cider

We planted thousands of garlic cloves in the rain at the farm today. The fields were muddy as hell but we had to dig deep, deal with the conditions and just grin and bear it. It was a sloppy mess and as we were slipping around, getting our boots stuck in the mud, and falling all over the place, all we could think about was coming into the house, lighting a fire and warming up with a cozy cocktail. Well, our wish came true and now that all of our garlic is resting in the upper field we can check a MAJOR fall project off the list. We’re stoked for next season’s harvest and feel really good about the quality of the seed garlic we set aside from this past season’s crop. It should be a great yield next year (fingers crossed!)

These cocktails were a great way to celebrate and should find a way to your happy hour gathering this weekend. If you’ve ever been a fan of hot buttered rum I think you will enjoy this crazy twist. We got some fresh cider from a farm stand right down the road and simmered it with spices and a touch of maple syrup. We served the drinks with a little butter, lemon juice and whiskey and boy were they wonderful! After one sip the aches and pains from the day quickly faded and we found ourselves laughing at what a ridiculous morning we’d had. It’s amazing what a hot shower, clean clothes, roaring fire and tasty cocktail can do for the soul.

Cheers from Tumbleweed Farm!

Total Time under 30 minutes

Five Ingredients or Less Yes

Taste and Texture buttery, spiced

Type of Dish alcoholic beverage, non-alcoholic beverage


  • 6 quarter-sized slices peeled fresh ginger
  • 6 star anise
  • Four 3-inch-long cinnamon sticks, plus more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon Sichuan pepper corns
  • 1 quart fresh apple cider
  • Calvados or applejack , for serving (optional)
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter , cut into tablespoons


Rinse and squeeze out a 12-inch square of cheesecloth. Wrap the ginger, star anise, cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, and Sichuan peppercorns in the cheesecloth. Using a piece of kitchen twine, tie it into a packet.

Pour the cider in a large nonreactive saucepan and add the spice bundle. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.

Ladle the cider into warmed mugs. Add a dry cinnamon stick to each mug, and spike with Calvados. Top each with a pat of butter. Serve hot.

How much THC is in this hot buttered apple cider edibles recipe?

The amount of THC in the cannabutter you use will directly affect the potency of your cider drinks. Always use caution when mixing THC-infused drinks with alcohol, they can pack quite a punch.

How to calculate THC in this edibles recipe

If you have 1000 mg THC per stick of cannabutter and this recipe uses 3/8 a stick for 6 servings, then each cup of cider would have 62.5 mg of THC and 2 oz. of brandy per serving. To reduce the THC per drink to 30 mg per servings using this same cannabutter, use 1.5 tablespoons of cannabutter and 1.5 tablespoons of regular butter.

If each stick of cannabutter has 720 mg of THC total (as would be common if you made your cannabutter with 1 stick of butter and 1 gram of shatter/dabs/BHO) then 3/8 a stick would provide 270 mg of THC total, or 45 mg for each of the 6 servings.

Half-gallon of apple cider
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter (coconut oil is a good vegan alternative)
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon sticks (optional)
3.5 grams ground cannabis
As much rum as your heart desires

Make your cannabutter first. It's an easy process that doesn't take longer than an hour. The process can be even easier if you use an automatic infuser, like the Levo machine pictured above. If you bought your cannabis from a dispensary, look at the THC testing results to calculate the potency of your butter. For example, 3.5 grams of a strain testing at 20 percent THC would infuse butter with 700 milligrams of THC. (You can also make THC-infused sugar to add to this recipe, but that takes a little more time and effort.)

After your cannabutter is made and solidified, bring the cider to a simmer over medium heat. Turn the heat down to low and stir in the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Stir in the butter and sugar until both are melted and mixed with the cider. Take the cooking pot off the heat and add booze, then pour into mugs. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired.
