Three Great Winter Drinks

Once in a while it is a good idea to indulge yourself on a cold winter night. If you are going to drink, it might as well be one of these three (3) top choices. You can thank me later.

Single Cup Hot Buttered Rum

  • 5 teaspoons of melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
  • 5 ounces of confectionary sugar
  • 5 fluid ounces of Jamaican Rum
  • One pinch of ground cinnamon
  • One pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Heat slowly as you blend ingredients
  • The rum goes into the slur when done mixing
  • Not too hot now!

Irish Coffee

  • 4 ounces of Starbuck’s Americano
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1-2 ounces of double-whipped cream
  • A dash of cinnamon
  • 1/5 ounces of straight Irish Whisky

  • Finish it off with the double-whipped cream

Hot Spiced Cider

  • 3 India Spice Tea Bags
  • ½ cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 quart of distilled water
  • 3 teaspoons of melted butter
