Author Notes

The recipe is a take off of the classic Hot Buttered Rum. In this case the drink is comprised of USDA Certified Organic Root Liquor made by Modern Spirits in California. It also has a bit of Rye Whisky from Tuthilltown Distillery in New York's Hudson Valley. And Butter... because butter makes everything taste better. —warren_bobrow
