Today is a perfect day to start our “Madtini Hot Cocktails of Winter” Series. Today, we woke up to several inches of fresh new snow, minus temperatures and a nose biting wind chill factor. Every few days over the next week or so, we’ll post a new drink that we’ve tried, that will hopefully do a little bit to take away the chill from our long cold winters. And a request to Madtini.com readers in warmer climates, we’re very open to opening up a Caribbean headquarters for Madtini.
Tonight’s ‘Hot Cocktail’ is the Hot Spiced Butter Rum, a smooth combination of spices, rum and ‘real’ butter. Cheers to warmer days
- 2 oz of Sailor Jerry spiced rum
- 1 tsp light brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp finely minced lemon rind
