Hot Buttered Rum
4-6 oz Hot Water or Hot Apple Cider
1/4 – 1/2 oz Honey
1/2 Teaspoon Unsalted Butter*
Cloves, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Etc, to Taste
In a small sauce pan, combine the butter, honey, and water or cider. Toss in some spices: a few whole cloves, some ground cinnamon, whatever tickles your fancy (it’s hard to praise enough the impact of freshly grated nutmeg on a drink like this). Heat slowly until the butter is melted and the mixture is hot. Pour the pan’s contents and the rum in a mug, garnish with a cinnamon stick, and celebrate Friday!
