Cold weather calls for warm cocktails... coupled with Netflix and fleece blankets, yes? We added a "wellness twist" to the classic cocktail, Hot Buttered Rum, by using ghee instead of butter. Ghee is a clarified butter incredibly rich in vitamins A and E, that is loaded with healthy fats (much like coconut oil) which can boost our digestive systems. It has a very minimal amount of lactose, compared to butter, which makes it great for those with dairy intolerances. This cocktail literally tastes like a pie in your mouth - so get ready!
Here's how it's done:
1/4 cup ghee 1/3 cup brown sugar Pinch of ground nutmeg Pinch of ground cloves Pinch of sea salt 2 tbsp honey 1 cup water 2 oz rum Cinnamon stick, for garnish
- In a small saucepan, add the ghee, dry ingredients (spices), and honey. Mix well over low heat.
- Add water and rum, continue to mix over low heat until combined - but be sure not to boil.
- Pour into your mug, garnish with a cinnamon stick, and ENJOY!
