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
