About this Cocktail

Off our B-side Winter Menu we have a Hot Buttered Rum. When doing some research on this drink I realized it originated in Colonial New England and was a way for folks to warm up and drink some rum in the winter. molasses was being imported from the West Indies and rum distilling was happening in New England. For those skeptical about this drink, just try it. It's damn delicious!

  • 1.5 Aged Rum like El Dorado 5 year
  • .75 Cinnamon Syrup
  • Table spoon pat of butter
  • Hot water

Warm hot beverage mug with boiling water. Empty water, add ingredients, top with boiling water, stir to melt butter. Garnish with grated cinnamon.
