On rainy or snowy days nothing chases those blues away quite like hot buttered rum.  This epic and cozy drink will certainly boost everyone’s hygge spirits.  When I get home after a long day at work I don’t want to whip up an entire batter for only one hot buttered rum drink.  So I started experimenting with the recipe.  I hope you enjoy!  It has been my “secret” recipe for awhile to “wow” my friends… it’s an easy crowed pleaser as an after dinner desert cocktail as well!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tablespoon of grass fed butter (regular butter is perfectly fine! I just use it for the taste and it’s supposedly healthier for you)
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar (or sweeten to taste)
  • A pinch of hazelnut
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • A pinch of cloves
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 8 ounces of hot water
  • 1 ounce of your favorite dark rum (or add to taste… or make it a double if it has been a particularly rough day)

Directions:

  1. Place the butter in the mug and melt in the microwave for 10-15 seconds or until the butter is melted.
  2. Next add all the dry ingredients into the mug with the butter and mix with a spoon.
  3. Then add 8 ounces of hot water to the mug leaving enough room for stirring or frothing. ( I highly recommend whipping  the ingredients with a handheld milk frother. They are not very expensive and you can find them on amazon for prices between $5-$20. Just search “milk frother” in the search bar. )
  4. Once the ingredients are mixed to your liking add the dark rum.
  5. Stir. Sip. Enjoy!!

Extra tips: Add a splash of cream before whipping if you like it creamier. You can also sprinkle a little extra cinnamon on top as a finishing garnish.

  1. I never thought butter could taste alright when mixed with a beverage until I tasted butterbeer. It wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be. Not my fav, but not the worst. So I can see how it being mixed with rum makes sense.
