Do divulge: just what is added to that AWESOME melted butter?

I'm not the Lobster Boy, but I'll respond as a RL employee:

Drawn butter is just clarified butter, nothing particularly special. I'm not sure if every Red Lobster uses the same brand of butter (I suspect different brands might have different tastes). Basically you heat a mix of butter (and margarine) if I'm not mistaken, and then skim off the remaining cream until you have nothing left but clarified butter. I'm sure if you dig around the web you can find the best way to do this. I know it doesn't take really high temperatures to do this. You will need to do some stirring, but it'll eventually become pretty clear at home if you work at it.

Thanks Big Chris!! I've often wondered how they got the butter to taste so darn good.
