hot buttered rum recipe

After a day of cold winter hiking or walking in the cold outdoors there is nothing better than getting home to a warming drink. This hot buttered rum cocktail recipe is just wonderful to warm yourself up and leave the cold winter air outside.

The drink has a long history. In the United States it is said to date back to the colonial days. It is also a drink that has a strong association with the festive period. When I drink it I do feel the cinnamon and spices really do add that Christmas time vibe.

A lot of people have a bottle of dark rum gathering dust in their drinks cupboard. Not I, as it is a big go to for me when I have a break from Keto. This drink recipe takes your rum and it adds some spicy winter flavours to get the taste buds going.

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 50 ml (a double shot) of dark rum

  • 140 ml hot water

  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 1 dash ground cinnamon

  • 1 dash vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon Stick for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • First make the batter
  • Put the butter (softened), together with the sugar and spices in a glass and mix together really well.
  • This will create your batter.
  • (If you wish to make more than one drink or create a batter once for many future uses then increase the spices and butter ingredients accordingly).
  • To make the drink
  • Place the spice batter in your glass of choice. (I make the batter in my glass anyway)
  • Pour in the rum
  • Pour in the hot water (I heat my water to not quite boiling so as not to spoil the flavours)
  • Stir together and all ready!

Enjoy a nice warm and spicy drink. lovely. Cheers
