Creamy Hot Buttered Rum

When it’s this cold outside, all I wanna do is hibernate.  And eat.  And sip on something warm (and spiked) by the fire like this Creamy Hot Buttered Rum.

Creamy Hot Buttered Rum

Hey, we all need an adult treat from time-to-time to get us through these frigid winter months (I do, anyway).  And you probably have everything you need to make this hot, creamy cocktail.  I used almond milk because that’s what I had.  You can use regular milk, or even a mixture of half & half and water.  If you’re not wanting the creamy flavor with the buttered rum, use hot water.  Anything works.  I mean, how can you go wrong with rum, butter, sugar and spices?

Frozen Pond

And when I say it has been cold, I mean it.  The pond in the back yard even froze last night.  So you can imagine how much I enjoyed this Creamy Hot Buttered Rum Cocktail.  It made freezing cold winter’s day a little more tolerable.  I hope you enjoy this hot and buttery cocktail as much as I did.  Cheers!

    It’s 80 degrees here right now (not to flaunt that fact or anything) and I am *still* craving this recipe–it sounds like a delightful warm-me-up in spite of the weather. Kind of like a butterbeer nostalgia! I can’t wait to try it.

      Ala I am so jealous of your warm weather! Thank you! :-) I too could probably have one (or three) of these ANY time of the year!
