This is the classic hot cocktail you may not have heard of, but it can be a true delight on a cold winter day. The butter give this potent drink a smooth texture, and the spices and hot water finish it off with a familiar wintery flavour.
Enjoy these one at a time or make a large batch for guests with the same proportions.
1 3/4 oz Rum (Dark or Spiced)
4 oz boiling water (or hot apple cider)
1/2 oz honey syrup
1 whole clove
Pinch of cinnamon
1/2 tsp unsalted butter
Add honey syrup, clove, cinnamon, butter to the bottom of an Irish coffee mug. Pour in rum, hot water, or apple cider and stir until well combined. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
