Hot Buttered Whiskey
A piping Hot Buttered Whiskey is the epitome of indulgence on a cold winter night. The trick to a good one is to whisk up a butter batter beforehand, to get the butter and sugar fully aerated and keep it from becoming an oily later on top of the drink.
We love this recipe from food blog Savory Simple. It’s relatively easy to make, and the honey is a nice touch to complement a good bourbon or blended whiskey. This recipe produces enough batter for several drinks, so if you’re not using it all at once you can roll it up in plastic wrap or store it in a covered dish and pop it in the freezer.
- 4 parts Butter
- 5 parts Brown sugar
- 1½ parts Honey
- ½ tsp ground Cinnamon
- ¼ tsp grated Nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp ground Clove
- ⅛ tsp Salt
- 1½ parts Bourbon or Rye whiskey or Blended whiskey
To make the batter, allow the butter to come to room temperature and then whisk in the sugar, honey, spices, and salt until filly mixed and well-aerated.
For each drink, add one-quarter of the butter batter, the whiskey, and 4 ounces (or 120 mL) of hot water. Whisk until it’s all combined and has a foamy head, and garnish with a cinnamon stick or a pinch of your favorite spices.
