Hot Butter Scotch

So this hot drink is not in the New York Bartender's guide. Hot Buttered Rum is, though and the recipe works better with scotch,  I think, than it does with rum. I picked Cutty Sark's Prohibition Edition scotch for its caramel flavor and because it is 100-proof. Any drink where the majority of the liquid is water needs a little help from higher proof spirits.
  • 2 oz. scotch (Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition used)
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • cinnamon stick
  • 1 pat butter
  • fresh ground nutmeg
  • hot water
Combine scotch and brown sugar in a hot drink mug. Add hot water and stir with cinnamon stick. Float butter on top and dust with nutmeg.
