Christmas Cheer to All!

There's nothing like a hot toddy to beat the cold when it settles into the bones. So, I thought I would share my own version of Hot Buttered Rum. Most recipes are so sweet they would throw a whole room into a diabetic coma. This one is light and clean, with just a little sweetness for balance. It gets rave reviews whenever it is served!

Put the kettle on, dear.
Put a little honey in a mug. It's up to you, but I put in a good heaping teaspoon of good, local honey.
Drop a pea-sized bit of creamy unsalted butter in.
Pour in a jigger of quality, golden rum. I've never tried it, but I'll bet a spiced rum would taste just dandy!
Grate a little nutmeg over it.

There's the kettle now! Pour in the steaming hot water and stir! Heaven.

And here's a virtual Buche De Noel I made. Have a slice. You know you want to.
