There’s not a better way to spend the evening than having friends or neighbours by for a drink or dinner over the holiday season.
So you have guests who walked to your place, or are travelling home in a 3rd party vehicle? Awesome! This means you can extend their delight by sending them home with a Canadian classic - The Roadie.
A roadie is a glorious gift you can provide to your guests who planned ahead and will not be taking the wheel to get themselves home safely. It’s the gift that keeps on giving after a fabulous evening of delicious food and time spent with friends and they will still be feeling your hospitality when they arrive home.
Have fun, and stay spicy!

Beat butter, sugar and all other dry ingredients until combined to create spiced butter.
Add 2 tbsp spiced butter, 2 cloves and 1.5 oz rum in each tumbler. Pour 3/4 cups of boiling water over rum and butter. Top with splash of apple cider. (If your guests are taking a taxi, why not offer their roadies in a closed container - one more great reward for responsibility!)
Delight your friends with a topping of real whipped cream and a slather of real caramel.
