Holiday Cocktails: Burnt-Sugar Hot Buttered Rum

So look: I was jollying around on some wordpress sites and I have found this deliciously wonderful sounding winter warmer, written by a lovely sounding gal and simply have to share it here. I intend to build a big bonfire and sip one of these as the light fades, fork in hand with fire embers flying into the crispy wintery air. One really must make an effort to love the cold. Thank you Katie at the Kitchen Door….

I love a hot drink in the winter. Not just the drink itself, but the anticipation of it as you trudge home in the cold, that first sip sending warmth flooding through your chest. Breathing in the steam, letting the spices and alcohol tickle your nose, even as your fingers are still stiff with cold. When I lived in Prague, a plastic cup filled to the brim with sweet mulled wine from the closest street vendor was a much-anticipated afternoon ritual, with a sleeve full of candied almonds in the other hand when I was feeling indulgent. As we get into the holiday season, with Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas following close behind, I want to share a few of my favorite seasonal drinks to help you get in the spirit, whether you’re cozying up to the fire with a good book or throwing the season’s best party.
