Hot Buttered Honey Whiskey Cocktail


I recently did a recipe collaboration with the lovely and talented Heidi Daus of Heidi Daus Designs (and a perennial HSN favorite), pairing her decadent jewelry with equally decadent drinks. This hot buttered honey whisky drink is perfect for warming up on a cold snowy night, and a great reward for digging yourself out of the crazy snow we’ve had on the east coast.

  • 2 tbs. salted butter
  • 2 oz. Honey Whiskey (like Jack Daniels)
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 3-4 oz. boiling water
  • Pinch of sea salt if desired
  • Cinnamon stick (optional- to serve)


  1. In a glass mug, combine the butter, rum, vodka, and brown sugar. Pour over the boiling water, and stir until everything is mixed.
  2. Garnish with a pinch of sea salt, and a cinnamon stick, if desired. Enjoy!
