Hot Buttered Whiskey (Or Rum) Batter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

We've been taking this on hunting trips since we were first married. It's different than any others I've ever seen, because we don't like the cinnamon and allspice, etc. that other batters have. This is like smooooooth caramel! We like it with bourbon, but you could use rum, or even hot tea, I suppose! This keeps in the freezer for several months. Servings are a guess.

This is so easy and so good. I sometimes add a lashing of freshly grated nutmeg to my cup, but I think it's nice that the batter has none. I also like that it has no powdered sugar - I find it quite sweet enough. Very relaxing on a winter's eve.
