12 oz. ale of your choice
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, browned
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Splashes of brandy (about 1 tablespoon) per glass
1 Cinnamon stick for garnish

Method: Add butter to small saucepan and melt on medium heat. Cook until butter becomes a light brown and has a slightly nutty smell (approximately 3 minutes). Reduce heat to low and add brown sugar and spices—cook until brown sugar is dissolved and the mixture is paste-like. Scrape into small bowl or ramekin and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the ale to the same saucepan and heat on medium until hot. Spoon two tablespoons of the spiced butter mixture in serving glass, pour hot ale into glass and add a splash of brandy (about 1 or 2 tablespoons) and stir. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
