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.

 

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
