I'm pleased to report that the end result is sweet but not overly cloying, tastes lightly of butterscotch, and is a pleasant treat. I made and drank this on a hot night, and I'm already thinking about how satisfying it will be when the weather gets colder.
Just a couple of notes to keep in mind: when you melt the butter and brown sugar together in the beginning, don't let them caramelize too long - just long enough for them to mix and taste a little like butterscotch. Once you've added the milk be sure to stir it thoroughly and bring the mixture to boil over low heat. Milk foams when it boils, and it will boil over in a second so pay close attention.
Drink it as hot as you can stand it!
