When we were in Lincoln, New Hampshire, this fall, we ate at a place called Black Mountain Burger Co. Their burgers are great, by the way, especially the bacon brie burger, but what enticed me in the door was the Hot Buttered Maple Whiskey (or some combination of those words) on their menu board. I had one. It was delicious. This is not that drink—I asked, but they weren’t giving out the recipe—it’s my attempt to recreate it at home. Mine’s not the same, but it’s still pretty good, especially on a cold night.
2 teaspoons maple sugar
2 ounces hot water
3 ounces coffee cream (10%)
1 tablespoon butter
2 ounces maple flavoured bourbon*
whipped cream (optional)
In a microwaveable mug, stir together the maple sugar and hot water. Add the cream and butter and microwave on high until the butter melts. Add bourbon. Top with whipped cream if desired. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
*Two ounces makes a potent drink. You can cut back a bit on the alcohol if you prefer. If you can’t find maple flavoured bourbon, add an extra teaspoon of maple sugar and substitute your preferred whiskey.
