Homemade butterscotch sauce
will be the most delicious here, but use store-bought if there’s a
brand you like. You can swap in ginger ale if you can’t find a good
(non-alcoholic) ginger beer, like Reed’s or Gosling’s.
6-8 tablespoons butterscotch sauce (depending how sweet you like it) 3 cups apple cider
1 cup bourbon whiskey (optional) 2 cups ginger beer
Whipped cream, for garnish
Heat cider, bourbon and butterscotch syrup in a medium saucepan until
the butterscotch dissolves and the mixture is steaming hot. Remove from
heat and stir in the ginger beer. Ladle into mugs and serve with loads
of whipped cream on top.
