Butter Me Up

Butter Me Up

Everything is better with butter. That includes cocktails. The Butter Me Up is a real crowd-pleaser. Azuñia Añejo tequila, rum, and homemade hot-buttered batter make this rich velvety cocktail more of a dessert than a drink. Seasoned with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, and cloves, it’s the creamy after-dinner drink your celebration calls for.
