Now, that it is cold outside it is time to warm things up with some hot Tiki drinks. There are many classic Tiki drinks that are served hot. As far as I know the Hot Buttered Mai Tai isn't a classic Tiki cocktail, but it has the right ingredients to be classified as a Tiki drink. This drink is a variation on a Hot Buttered Rum. It is made with Dark Rum, Butter, Orange Zest, and Honey.
Hot Buttered Mai Tai Mix Ingredients:
- 4 Tablespoons Butter, softened
- 2 Tablespoons Orange Zest
- 1/4 Teaspoon Almond Extract
Combine, the butter, orange zest, and almond extract in a small bowl. Smash the ingredients together with a fork until they are well combined. The mix will make four Hot Buttered Mai Tais.
Hot Buttered Mai Tai Ingredients:
- 2 oz. Dark Rum
- 1 Tablespoon Hot Buttered Mai Tai Mix
- Hot Water
- 2 Teaspoons Honey
Put the dark rum, and the Hot Buttered Mai Tai Mix in a coffee mug. Top it off with hot water. Then, add Honey to taste. Stir the ingredients together until the Hot Buttered Mai Tai Mix and honey is dissolved.
The sweetness factor is pretty low on this one. The orange and almond flavors really come through nicely. This one will warm you up and take you to a tropical paradise.
