Butter Up: Liquid Butterscotch Recipe

7 months ago

liquid butterscotch

Contrary to popular belief, butterscotch didn’t originate in Scotland and does not contain Scotch like its name suggests. Instead, the “-scotch” is believed to refer to the method of cutting for the original butterscotch candy. Now, it comes in a cocktail glass, liquefied with just the right amount of sweetness that made it so famous.


Liquid Butterscotch
Makes 1 serving

3 Tbsps Don Papa Rum

1 ½ Tbsps Butter syrup*

2 Tbsps Maple syrup

2 Tbsps Orange juice

  • Dash of ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish

1 cup Ice cubes

  • Sprig of mint, for garnish


Mix all the ingredients together in a shaker then shake until the surface of shaker sweats from the cold. Strain and serve in a cocktail glass. Add a sprig of mint and a dash of ground cinnamon before serving.



Makes about 1 cup


½ cup Butter

½ cup Brown sugar

½ cup Low-fat milk

¼ cup Heavy cream

½ Tbsps Corn syrup

½ tsp Baking soda

1 Tbsp Vanilla extract


  1. Add butter, brown sugar, milk, cream, and corn syrup to a medium-sized saucepan set over medium heat.
  2. Stir to combine as butter melts and mixture melds together. Bring mixture to a boil, about five minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add baking soda and whisk quickly because mixture will bubble up. Keep whisking gently until it simmers down. Add in vanilla extract and stir until well incorporated.
