Hot Buttered Rum

hot buttered rum

I remember the first time Mrs. Simple Cocktails and I made Hot Buttered Rum – it was a disgusting disaster. I’m not sure where we found the recipe, but we ended up melting a stick of butter and basically just pouring the rum in and sipping it. Nasty! Well, like the Hot Toddy, a Hot Buttered Rum is similar to tea in that the primary ingredient is boiling water: clearly the missing element from our original attempt at the drink. Here’s a proper recipe for Hot Buttered Rum. Enjoy!

Hot Buttered Rum

  • in a mug, add:
  • 1 sugar cube
  • a pat of butter
  • 2 oz rum (I used spiced rum)
  • top with boiling water and stir well
