Welcome to this month's edition of the Improv Cooking Challenge where we are each given the challenge of creating a dish featuring the same two ingredients. This month, hosted by Nicole of Cookaholic Wife, we were given honey and cinnamon to work with as our challenge.
I don't know what the weather is like where you live but I live in Michigan and we had a nice snowstorm come through on Sunday. We have a beautiful covering of snow that isn't going anywhere soon because the temps are below freezing.
This makes it a perfect time to light a fire and cozy up with a good book and a warm drink. The drink I chose to share is a Hot Buttered Rum.....Can you say YUMYUM!! I'm a poet and didn't know it LOL.
I found this recipe on the Absolut Vodka Website and handed my phone to Frank who is the master bartender in this family. Then I sat patiently and waited for it to be served. It was incredible....I am having a dinner party on Friday and I think this is going to be the featured drink. I will make up a whole batch in the slow cooker so it stays warm and delicious to warm my guests inside and out when they arrive.
Merry Christmas everyone. Don't forget to check out what the others created using Honey and Cinnamon.
