In a medium saucepan, whisk together all the ingredients except the butter. Add the butter and heat the pan over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the butter is melted and the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.

Pour the mixture through a fine sieve in a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill until cool.
