Thoroughly whisk together mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce; reserve, tightly covered, in the refrigerator. Return sauce to room temperature before serving. To prepare onion rings, heat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet or jelly-roll pan with paper toweling; reserve. Slice onions 1/4-inch thick. Separate into rings; reserve. Pour 3 inches of oil into a large frying pan; heat to 375 degrees F. With metal tongs, dip a few onion rings into batter, then carefully put them into the hot oil. Fry, turning the rings a couple of times until golden brown. Remove from oil; put rings on the reserved towel-lined pan. Put in the oven; keep warm up to 1-2 hours. Continue until all the onion rings have been used.
