Hot Buttered Rum

Print Friendly and PDF

On a recent trip to Lake Tahoe with the Olschefski's, we made Hot Buttered Rum Drinks, perfect for a chilly night in the mountains.  You mix the ingredients together, then add rum and hot water.  You can add a cinnamon stick as garnish, if you wish.

1 stick butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Hot water

Mix the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg together to form a paste.  Combine 2 T spiced butter with 3 T rum in each mug.  Add 3/4 cup boiling water and mix.

Beautiful Lake Tahoe
