The holiday season brings with it cold temperatures here in the Pacific Northwest. I think there is no better way to warm up on a cold afternoon than with a mug of my Hot Buttered Brandy! The traditional way to have this drink is of course with rum, but I like the smooth flavor that brandy brings to this drink.
I like to make a batch of the butter mix and keep it stored in the fridge at the ready for anytime we might need to warm up. Hot Buttered Brandy is so easy to make. You’ll love it!
- 1 stick softened unsalted butter
- 2 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pinch of nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- pinch of salt
- With a rubber spatula, mix all of the ingredients together, except for the brandy so that everything is incorporated into a batter. Store in a container in the fridge.
- In a mug, add 1 shot (or two) of brandy. Add a tablespoon (or two) of batter and stir. Fill the mug to the top with boiling water and stir. Enjoy!
