Hot Buttered Rum


Even though the weather has been pretty warm here, it is January and I feel the need to follow some of my winter rituals.  So, after running errands most of the day yesterday I came home, made myself a little hot buttered rum and relaxed with the cats for a bit.  And this morning I heard the news about the huge storm on the East coast and thought this is something those folks could really use!

This recipe is really yummy and the nice thing is that you can make up a batch early in the year and then just make a cup or two whenever you feel the need. 

Creamy Hot Buttered Rum

  • 1 qt vanilla ice cream, softened (let it get almost liquidy)
  • 1# soft butter
  • 1# brown sugar
  • 1# powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cream butter, sugars and spices. When they are thoroughly mixed, mix in the ice cream. Store in freezer until ready to use.

To make drinks:

  • Put a generous tablespoon of batter into a mug
  • Add a shot of rum (I prefer something like Bacardi Gold)
  • Stir until batter and rum are completely mixed
  • Fill mug with hot water and stir again
  • Sprinkle freshly ground nutmeg over top
