Hot Buttered Rum

Here are 2 methods for making Hot Buttered Rum. The first is a fairly quick, ready-to-serve recipe you can use for guests while the second allows you to prepare just one serving at a time. Great for cold winter nights!

2/3 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) Unsalted Butter, room temp
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
Pinch of Salt
3/4 cup Spiced Rum
2 cups Boiling Water
4 Cinnamon Sticks for Garnish

In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the brown sugar, butter, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.

Transfer mixture to a 4-cup measuring cup.  Add the Rum and then the boiling water, stirring until the butter mixture is blended.  Pour into 4 mugs and garnish with cinnamon sticks.  Serves 4.
