Hot Apple Cider Buttered Rum Cocktails
10 days to Thanksgiving, are you ready?
I'm still in the process of menu planning.
Colt has agreed to join me in the kitchen this year and we'll be prepping as much as we can ahead of time to simplify the process.
Colt made these Hot Apple Cider Buttered Rum Cocktails to help us warm up with the chilly weather we've been having.
They are a must on my Thanksgiving menu.
The batter can easily be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge, it only becomes better with age.
The Hot Apple Cider part of these drinks can easily be kept warm in a crock-pot for an easy to serve cocktail over the holidays.
These are sure to please! 

Cream together 3/4 cup Butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoons Nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon Allspice, 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt and 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract.
Add 2 cups Brown Sugar and 1 tablespoon of Honey,
Mix until smooth and creamy.
Once Hot Butter Rum Batter is combined store in fridge until ready to use.
Hot Buttered Rum Batter
I find the batters flavor improves after a day in the refrigerator as the spices and butter have time to mellow and blend.
Hot Apple Cider Buttered Rum Cocktails are perfect for the holidays.
To assemble Hot Apple Cider Buttered Rums: Place 2 teaspoons Buttered Rum Batter in a mug, add 1 shot of good quality Rum and top glass with Hot Apple Cider.
Garnish with cinnamon sticks and serve.
I promise these will be a hit!
