Hot Buttered Rum

A classic winter cocktail

Hot Buttered Rum

For those in the northern United States, winter can feel like a very long season. In Chicago, sip on a classic warm cocktail instead of braving the wind and snow that are so often the hallmarks of the season. We're loving this version from Roger Landes, bar manager at the dual concept Smyth and the Loyalist. 


  • 1.5 Ounces 8-year El Dorado rum
  • .5 Ounce Falernum
  • .25 Ounce Creme de Cacao
  • Barspoon of Demerara Syrup
  • .5 Tablespoon Wisconsin Butter
  • nutmeg


Combine the El Dorado rum, Falernum, Creme de Cacao, Demerara Syrup, and butter in a mug. Fill with hot water. Shave nutmeg on top.
