Hot Buttered Lemonade

November 2, 2012

I have had a love of lemonade since I was a little kid and my family used to have lemonade stands outside my house. When at the grocery store out of all the juice choices I always subconsciously go for one with a lemonade base…. This buttery lemonade is perfect for cold nights and tired throats and has a creamy smooth texture that you wont forget. This is the ultimate “comfort beverage” hot chocolate you better watch out.

Hot Buttered Lemonade 
4 servings

3 cups water
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
2 tablespoon butter (1/2 tablespoon per serving)
4 cinnamon sticks


1. In a saucepan simmer water, lemon juice, sugar and lemon zest until fully dissolved

2. Pour each serving into glasses or mugs and top with 1/2 tablespoon of butter and a cinnamon stir stick

3. Enjoy.

If you want to kick up your lemonade a notch you can also add 1/4 cup of Rum to the mix ;)

    This sounds strange yet tasty, too — especially with the Rum. Thanks for sharing. I’m game to give it a go. Thanks also for stopping by Travel Oops and liking the Gaudi photos. Steph

    The name sounds absolutely strange, but the complete drink sounds like it has some pizazz! I’m gonna have to buy some cinnamon sticks and give this a whirl :) And I do believe I might even have a lil Rum left. Thank you for stopping by onceajunkieneverforget
