Recipe of the week: Hot buttered Guinness

The hot buttered Guinness below takes its cue from a “Dickensian potion” called the Dog’s Nose.

“Hot buttered rum can be a great drink,” said Gary Regan in the San Francisco Chronicle. But don’t let your winter nights be all about rum. Butter, spices, and sugar also work with other types of booze, from syrupy Fernet to Guinness—yes, Guinness. The hot buttered Guinness below takes its cue from a “Dickensian potion” called the Dog’s Nose, which uses gin instead of rum, along with warmed stout and a little brown sugar. Mixed spice is a British blend that’s generally used for baking. It’s available in specialty stores, but a do-it-yourself version has been included below.
