Hot Buttered Rum at Bertha's

In short, this is everything a hot buttered rum should be: thick and sweet, with a sugary nose and an irresistibly rich finish. The bartenders at Bertha's roll a lump of butter in sugar, add hot water and a splash of dark rum and serve it in a glass mug, sometimes with a straw, sometimes with a cinnamon stick. The liquor is barely noticeable, which means the warm brew, $5.83, goes down smooth. Dangerously smooth. Venue info: Bertha's Sun photo by Sam Sessa
