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.

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!
