It’s time for another Happy Hour brought to you by Points, Miles & Martinis. This time we bring you the Hot Buttered Rum drink. Hat tip to Wayne at liquor for capturing how to make this warm cocktail. He interestingly points out that in 1948 David Embury wrote in his book that this drink was the “the worst” libation. So what do you think, would you try it?
