Hot Buttered Toddy with Cocoa Nib-Infused Brandy

Cocktails are all about playing around—especially at your house! This time of year, we want something to warm our bones. We love hot toddies (brown liquor, hot water or tea and lemon) for their simplicity, but we LOVE hot buttered rum (rum, hot water, buttery spice mix) for its creamy mouthfeel. Below, we’ve shared our take—with our very own versions of butter mix and cocoa nib liquor.

It’s easy to make in large batches, too. Just keep the hot liquid in a thermal carafe and the spicy butter in a bowl with a teaspoon. You can easily whip one up as guests arrive or write a little recipe instruction card for your guests to DIY.

The brandy also makes a wonderful stand-alone gift when strained into a decorative stoppered bottle, found at most craft or houseware stores.
