No, you can't just microwave a mug of rum and throw a stick of butter in it, to make Hot Buttered Rum. The flavors in the cocktail must be fleshed out and built upon, much like a soup. A soup with an alcohol content. This is a very rich, and flavorful cocktail that will keep you warm on those long winter evenings, after a long day of feeding bodies into a woodchipper.

There's no word more feared by sugar junkies, looking to get their next fix, than 'fruitcake'. Yes, that seasonal brick of neon-colored fruit, nuts and what one can only assume is caulk & shellac.

Still trying to think of some last-minute Thanksgiving dessert ideas? Or perhaps you're looking forward to Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate the shortest days of the year) Well this recipe is tasty and simple. It's a break from the usual, but at the same it feels so familiar. Much like adding lemon to Coke.
