Go Beyond the Buttery Nipple Dekuyper Buttershots Recipe

Your New Go-to Festive Dekuyper Buttershots Drink Recipe

The Vermont Kiss.

One Christmas a beautiful maple leaf-shaped candy came out of my stocking. Its sugared exterior sparkled like falling snow. It was so pretty I did not want to eat it, so I took a tiny bite out of the stem. Wow, it was so sweet it took me a week to finish it! This cocktail is a nod to that maple leaf without the super sugar charge.

This vodka-based, butterscotch schnapps recipe makes a cocktail that is perfect for the holiday season. It features flavors of maple and rich butterscotch with nutmeg, but it is not as sweet as it sounds. The vodka and cream really reduce the sugary taste.

I recommend drinking this while watching “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and Rosemary Clooney. It will really help get you and your friends in the festive spirit of the holidays.
