Suck it Up Buttercup
‘Suck it Up Butter Cup’ is the ultimate comfort drink. Warm and buttery-the perfect drink for a cold, snowy, or rainy day. So romantic in front of a roaring fire…
This is an idea that has spanned generations. Distilleries started opening in the Colonies in the 1650’s and it didn’t long for colonists to add Rum to hot beverages- Totties, Nogs, and Hot-Buttered Rums became a much-loved part of the cold-weather landscape.
One sip- and Wow- you feel good all over! I like to double the batter recipe and keep it in the freezer. Then it is so quick to put together- and something last-minute guests will love. They will “Suckit Up”. A beautiful drink for the Holidays.
