Last weekend when it was cold and snowing, I pulled out an old favorite recipe for a warming cocktail: Hot Buttered Rum.
I reserve this drink only for truly chilly days.
Melt 1 Tablespoon of butter in your drink glass
Add to it 1 Tablespoon of dark brown sugar
Bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil and pour it over the butter and sugar
Add 2 ounces of dark rum to the mix
Finish with a pinch of nutmeg (preferably freshly ground)
On a related note, Ashley and I have been enjoying this Cruzan rum. She says it’s the only way to drink a Dark & Stormy. I’m usually a whisky or gin sort of guy, but this has changed the way I think about using and enjoying rum.
If you feel inspired and try this, I’d love to hear what you think.
Anyone else have a favorite warming recipe?
