In honor of Chinese New Year, Friday Girl TV was invited to cover the launch of Sakiri Vodka at Fusion 19 in conjunction with 19th Hole Magazine and the New Times Culture Education Center/Shen Yun Performing Arts Center. It was a fabulous event and the location was very posh and glamorous. The drinks made with Sakiri Vodka were yummy! We enjoyed bringing in the year of the Rabbit with great drinks, mini bites, a fashion show and a wonderful performance.
With help of our friends at Van Gogh Vodka and Ron Abuelo Rum, October made some wonderfully sweet and yummy hot buttered rum featuring caramel vodka and rum as the highlights. This is a great drink to make during those cold winter months when you need something rich to drink. It has very simple ingredients so it’s a great recipe for bartending experts and non bartenders alike. Below is the recipe. Cheers!
3 oz Ron Abuelo Añejo
1 oz Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka
2 Tbsp stick Unsalted Butter, softened
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Honey
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
Add all ingredients (excluding rum and vodka) into a hot drinking cup or mug. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined and have formed a batter. Add Ron Abuelo Añejo rum and Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka. Pour in hot water (1 cup or more to personal taste) and stir vigorously until the mixture has dissolved. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
