HOT BUTTERED RUM


There's nothing quite as warming on a cold day as a mug of Traditional Hot Buttered Rum. Here's both the traditional style and a few tweaks that are my own personal favorites when I need to take the chill off.

HOW DO I TWEAK THIS?

I replace the hot water with hot cider, add a pinch of sea salt and garnish with a dusting of cinnamon. I've also tried hot pear cider, plum juice and even a mixture of citrus in place of the hot water.

If you're serving this for a party, you can take this same recipe, multiply the ingredients by the number of people you want to serve (I double the number because most people will have two) and put this all in a crock pot to keep warm for your cold weather happy hour.

I also often prepare the Hot Buttered Rum batter ahead of time because that way it's faster to make additional drinks later. To do this I simply multiply the butter, spices and brown sugar times twice the number of drinks I'm planning on serving. Why twice? Because it lasts several weeks if refrigerated AND this Hot Buttered Rum batter is great on toasted pound cake slices to serve with the drink! It's also perfect on pancakes and waffles.

Now, grab your rum, butter and spices and go warm up your soul.


National Hot Buttered Rum Day is January 17th.
