Hot Buttered Rum

It’s cold……So I really had no choice but to make a hot drink!

That’s my story and I’m stuck to it :)

Hot buttered rum is not fancy, foo fooey, or difficult to make. It’s not decorated perty or fluffed up…..

It’s just a healthy dose of amazing

This makes a large batch of the mix that either gets refrigerated or frozen, or given as a gift to a friend…but they better be a REALLY deserving friend!

Seriously though, it makes a wonderful gift when given in a decorative little crock with a mug and directions. Haven’t had any complainers here.

Ingredients: (prepare yourself…the mix is a little shocking)

4 sticks of butter (now don’t freak out….it’s only a pound)

2 pounds brown sugar (I’m giggling just typing this, it sounds really bad for ya)

1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions: (for the mix)

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Mix well then add in the remaining ingredients.

Add the mix to a covered container and freeze or refrigerate. Each drink takes only 1 tablespoon of this mix so it lasts a fairly long time. Now see….one tablespoon at a time, that’s not so bad right :)

To make a drink (Write these directions on an index card if giving as a gift with the mix)

Add 1 heaping tablespoon of the mix to a large mug or glass

Pour in 1/2 ounce of dark rum

Add 6 ounces of boiling water

Grate fresh nutmeg over the top and stir to combine

(and repeat)

Signing Off,

    I hope this is not a dumb question….but is this good when you have a sinus thing going on? My husband makes me a whisky, honey and lemon thing…Tasted yukky, but works. I would love a tasty alternative!

    • I was raised hearing that the only dumb question was the one unasked :) Although I cannot say for certain that this has any medical benefit…being that it’s a delicious and warm drink I’m fairly positive it couldn’t hurt :) I can picture being stuffy, cuddled in a warm blanket and sipping this drink. Yep it would do nicely!

  3. It’s time for this so I’m making and have one…..or two tonight!!! Thanks MMC…Love Your Stalker
