GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Pumpkin Hot Buttered Rum

On Thursday, Dec. 18, you’ll find a trio of spirited events. Tales of the Cocktail puts on its seasonal Tales of the Toddy event at the House of Blues while Emeril’s Restaurant hosts Omagasse, its five-course, off-the-menu dinner series with optional wine pairing. Do festive drinks make you feel like singing? Head to NOLA ChristmasFest for the Karaoke Caroling & Cocktails event. With all this imbibing in mind, we’ve borrowed this Emeril’s Delmonico’s recipe for Pumpkin Hot Buttered Rum. Cheers!
