A classic recipe, you might also enjoy the hot baked apple toddy. It comes from "The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book," which was first published in 1934 and is a treasure trove of classic cocktail recipes. This toddy gets the apple flavor by pairing a freshly baked apple with apple whiskey, though apple brandy is a fine substitute. While there's no need for cider, you can certainly use it if you like. To make this toddy, place 1/4 of a baked apple in the bottom of a warm Irish coffee glass.
