What I’m Drinking Right Now
I came up with the Hot-Buttered Rumkin to warm me up on cold nights. Turns out, it’s also an incredibly effective hangover remedy. The headline ingredient, pumpkin, is high in vitamins A and C, which feed the immune system. The holiday party circuit can be brutal. A mug of this stuff should square you faster for the next occasion. Maybe make it two on New Year’s Day.
Mix together ½ cup of softened salted butter, ¼ cup pumpkin puree, ¼ tsp. orange zest and ½ tsp. warm spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg). Whether you do it by it hand or with a mixer, make sure everything’s fully combined. Then, leave at room temperature.
In a mug, combine 1 tbsp. brown sugar, 2 ounces Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and 2 tbsps. pumpkin mixture. Top with boiling water and stir well.
