Honey Mustard Beer Butter
4 ounces (1 stick, 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon honey
1 heaping teaspoon honey or Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon beer
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Before beginning, make sure the butter is soft (but not melted): pressing it with your finger should leave a divot. If the butter is too firm, it will not blend in with the honey, and the honey will seep out in little beads.
2. Use a mixer to mix the butter until very soft and silky (2 to 3 minutes). Drizzle in the honey and continue mixing until well incorporated.
3. Add the mustard, beer and salt, and beat until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Use immediately, or wrap completely and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
