Hot Buttered Rum
Hot Buttered Rum is a drink that originated in the 18th century. It's traditionally made with rum, hot water, sugar, and butter, stirred together to create a creamy hot mixture. There are many variations of this hot drink - some recipes include nutmeg or cinnamon for flavor.
In a mixing bowl, combine butter and vanilla extract with sugar until well combined.
Stir in hot water until butter is melted. Add spices and rum, stir again until well combined.
Serve hot into mugs with a cinnamon stick or ground cloves for garnish if desired.
The hot buttered rum is a traditional drink that's enjoyed during the winter months. It was created in colonial times when families experimented with their own recipes and believed those as body strengthening!
