Hot Buttered Bourbon
Updated: Feb 6, 2018
We wanted to play off of Hot Buttered Rum which has been around since the 1850's. And, the whiskey tax rebels used hot alcoholic beverages in the winter to help warm themselves. Doing research, we discovered that there are many recipes available today for hot buttered bourbon, so we combined ingredients from different recipes to come up with our own.
Hot Buttered Bourbon is very warming, rich and delectable. It's easy to get "in your cups" while drinking this. ("In his cups" was the expression used during the Whiskey Rebellion to describe someone who had had too much to drink.)
2 oz. Liberty Pole Spirits Bourbon
1 - 2 oz. chunk of Butter Batter
Place the Butter Batter in a mug. Add the LPS Bourbon and fill mug with boiling water. Stir until batter melts completely. Garnish with a pat of butter.
1 stick of butter at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp clove
pinch of salt
Beat the ingredients for the batter until light and fluffy. Turn the batter out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log slightly bigger than a stick of butter. Refrigerate until firm enough to slice like butter.
