Mixology Monday

Number 10: Drinks for a Festive Occasion

Kim is in charge when it comes time to put up a the tree at the restaurant. When you're putting up and decorating a 14 to 18 foot tree, you need some liquid inspiration. This year Kim wanted Hot Buttered Rum.

Hot Buttered Rum:

2oz Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 Años rum

1.5 oz Boiling Water

1 barspoon batter (see below for batter recipe)

1 cinnamon stick

Blend together the following ingredients to make the batter:
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
pinch of fresh ground nutmeg
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of cinnamon

Pre-warm your favorite tiki skull Santa mug with hot water. Put one barspoon of the batter in the mug and add 2 oz. of a nice aged rum and a dash of falernum. Add 1.5 oz boiling water. Stir it up and garnish with a cinnamon stick.

I used Gran Centenario 23-year old rum and Fee Brothers Falernum, but you can use whatever you have on-hand. Same with the spices. This is a recipe you can really customize and make your own. Don't forget to head over to The Spirit World to see all the festivities.

Now get that tree up! Happy Holidays.

Being a little slow, I assume you then empty the mug once warmed and proceed...

Thanks, Rich

Sorry Rich, yeah, warm up the mug, then dump out whatever you used to warm it. Then proceed. Thanks!
