And We Have Snow!

Very softly and silently, it snowed last night to everyone’s delight. It was lovely outside and cozy inside. Perfect to a morning of sledding followed by a comforting hot beverage. The Princess had Hot Chocolate. My Hero and I enjoyed a Hot Buttered Whiskey. Pretty decadent but hey, when it snows enough to sled for the first time in two years you celebrate.

The Usual Cast Of Characters

  • For the Batter:
  • 1 stick butter (room temp)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon all spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon clove
  • For the Drink:
  • 2 ounces whiskey
  • 1 ounce batter (hot buttered)
  • 4 ounces water (hot, or to fill)

The Steps To Glory

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Add all of the batter ingredients to a large bowl.
  3. Using a mixer with paddle attachment, mix well for 1 to 2 minutes until all ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Turn the batter out onto a sheet of plastic wrap or spoon into ice trays
  5. Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.
  6. The batter cubes can be frozen for up to 3 months!
  7. Slice off a good dollop of the batter (about 1 ounce) or add batter cube and add it to a warmed mug or glass.
  8. Add the whiskey and fill with hot water until desired consistency.
  9. Stir well

  1. Oh! That sounds so good! I’ve never had a hot buttered whiskey before but it sounds like it would do just the trick to warming you up on a cold winters day!
