Red Ram Mixers: T.G.I.F. Cocktail Recipes for April 17
Red Ram Mixers is created in Georgetown, Colorado.  In 2010, the company became the property of Brian and Lanette Dykman.  The idea for a Hot Buttered Rum Mixer had been germinating via a Colorado bartender for a few years prior to that.  The Dykman's planted their heels and began the slow-brewed processes which would make their mixers the ones to have.  They sell Vanilla Spice Syrup and the aforementioned Hot Buttered Rum & Vanilla Spice Drink Mix. 

Received:

  • (2) 12 Fl Oz Bottles of Hot Buttered Rum & Vanilla Spice Drink Mix, MSRP $6.45

The label says that you may consume the mixers sans the alcohol, so we tried it.  It was delightful.  Surely, this would make an outstanding Mexican candy.  A butter pat and a dash of cinnamon are recommended toppings.  See?  This would be good candy, huh?  Incredibly fattening and rich.  But, yes.  It can and should be done.
