    Cocktails with Heather: Hot Buttered Rum

    By Heather Freyer–

    Teeling Small Batch whiskey is finished in a rum cask, hence the play on the name of this soothing and warming holiday favorite.

    Hot Buttered ‘Rum’ or ‘Not’
    1.5 ounces Teeling Small Batch
    3 ounces hot water
    1 tablespoon St. Germain Butter

    St. Germain Butter

    1/4 cup St. Germain liqueur
    3 sticks soft butter
    2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon ground clove

    For the Butter, cream all Butter ingredients together and form into a log shape. Place in wax paper and refrigerate the Butter overnight. When ready to serve, pour the hot water over a quarter-sized slice of the Butter in a heat-proof glass or mug and stir. Add Teeling, stir again, and toast to the season!
