RECIPES

 

Hot Buttered Rum

(I made this for some friends and it was a hit on a cold snowy night)

2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/2 unsalted butter at room temperature

1/4 honey (I only used half as much)

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

pinch of salt

3/4 cup spiced rum( I used Captain Morgans)

Using an electric mixer, beat brown sugar, butter, honey, and spices until blended and smooth.

Transfer mixture to a 4 cup or larger mixing cup. (or beat it in the measuring cup to save on clean up)

Add the rum and them 2 cups boiling water.

Stir until the butter mixture dissolves.

Divide among 4 mugs. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.
