Before guests arrive pull out your juice extractor and make a delicious blend of grapefruit and apple juices. Shake the fresh juice with ice, vodka and grenadine, then pour it into a martini glass and garnish with an apple slice. It’s a beautiful drink that tastes (and looks) worthy of a celebration. Cheers!

Hot Buttered Rum from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Hot buttered rum is a classic fireside cocktail, perfect for the colder months when we need to warm up from the chill outside. Serve it as a hot beverage at a party (guests will welcome the warm mug in their cool hands) or as an after-dinner drink that keeps the conversation flowing. The fruity hot buttered rum could stand in for dessert, and it will make your house smell divine as it warms in your slow cooker.
