The Trina Turk dress is that perfect caramely neutral shade, it's made with soft and flattering fabric, and unlike the hot buttered rum, it's office-appropriate.
Hot Buttered Rum
Recipe adapted from Martha Stewart and Taste of Home
3 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 1/2 ounces dark rum
1 1/2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons vanilla ice cream (optional)
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice (optional)
Beat butter, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and nutmeg with a mixer on medium speed until combined, about 1 minute. Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture with 1 1/4 ounces of dark rum in 2 heatproof glasses. Based on your preference, add either 1 tablespoon of vanilla ice cream (for a richer, sweeter hot buttered rum) or 1/2 tablespoon of orange juice to each glass. Top each glass with boiling water, about 1/2 cup, and stir. Serves 2.
