ModCloth Friendsgiving: A Buttercup Cocktail with Kaelah of Little Chief Honeybee!


As the holiday season quickly approaches, our thoughts have turned to what to give, what to get, and of course, what to eat! If you’re in need of a recipe to round-out your holiday menu, look no further, this week we’re welcoming five guest bloggers to the Story by ModCloth Friendsgiving table. Today, Kaelah of Little Chief Honeybee shares her recipe for a Buttercup Cocktail, sure to warm you from the inside out:

From Kaelah: The holidays are definitely the time of year when a ton of emphasis is put on food, but you shouldn’t forget all the amazing seasonal cocktails available! My perfect evening would be spent curled up in a chair with a book, blanket and cocktail, toasting my toes by a fireplace. Pretty dreamy, right? Today I’m here to share with you a new favorite autumn cocktail of mine: The Buttercup. The Buttercup cocktail may sound dainty and unassuming, but this little drink packs a punch. It’s 75% alcohol in it’s unaltered state, but feel free to play with the ratios to get the perfect taste for you!


The Buttercup Cocktail
By Kaelah of Little Chief Honeybee

2 oz Butterscotch schnapps
2 oz Coffee liqueur
2 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream

1. Mix each of the alcoholic components together in a lowball glass.

2. Fill the glass with milk to achieve the preferred taste. I used 2oz, but if you prefer less “bite” to your cocktail, try 4 oz.

3. Top off your drink with whipped cream and milk chocolate shavings. I added a chocolate straw to give my cocktail an extra punch of flavor!


Despite this cocktail being slightly chilly, it’s sure to keep you toasty warm on cooler evenings! Enjoy!

    This looks amazing! I would probably have to add a decent amount of milk to take the intensity out of it, but it looks great. The chocolate shavings are the perfect topping. Do you think would also taste good with any of the liquors mixed with hot chocolate?
