Remove the saucier from the heat and slowly drizzle in the butter while vigorously whisking to emulsify it.

If the mixture becomes too thick or oily in appearance, add a tiny bit of hot water and incorporate to adjust the mixture. Once all of the butter has been incorporated, strain the Hollandaise through a fine mesh sieve and serve while warm.
