It’s been a little rainy and grey around these parts so I’ve been looking for a warm cozy cocktail to enjoy this fall season. We recently got into hot toddies and I didn’t get the idea of warm alcohol until I tried it! So when I heard of Hot Buttered Rum I knew it was a must try. I mean that name alone sounds like a soothing cuppa warmth!
I’ve written this recipe for one serving but you may want to double or triple it as necessary and add more spices to your taste. For this cocktail, I followed the classic recipe with the exception of swapping dark rum for black rum. Black rum is delicious if you’ve never had it and with Halloween coming up it should be easy to find.
This holiday season, I want to try some extra ingredients to up the creaminess and maybe throw it in a crockpot for a snow day. For now I can’t wait to curl up under the covers with a cup of Hot Buttered Rum for our Halloween tradition of a horror movie marathon. If you don’t have any Halloween plans, you’re welcome to steal ours!
