It feels like spring is right around the corner, but Winter is still in its full chilly force, even here in the California central valley. You won’t find me complaining, though. The chilly weather is perfect for my favorite hot cocktails to nip away at the cold.
My personal favorite is Hot Buttered Rum, but I have never actually tried my hand at making it myself! So today, I don my skipper hat (one of them, anyways) and break out the rum in attempts to make this magical refreshment and cross my fingers for a good turn out!
Watch on to see my silly attempts at making this hot boozy concoction. I got my recipe from Smuggler’s Cove by Martin Cate. I used both the rum batter recipe and the cocktail mix from the book.
My score on my mix of Hot Buttered Rum would be…
Four out of Five zombies
It came out perfect for a cold winter day/night and despite the fact that my rum choice wasn’t exactly a perfect fit, it still tasted delightful!
What do you find to be your grog of choice when it feels like the frost will never end?
I’m also looking for a suggestion for rum to use! Zaya was a smidge too strong… >.<;;;
