Hot Buttered Rum...

Yesterday was the first day we've seen snow fall in my little mountain town this season.  About 2 inches of fluffy white powder rested nicely on the ground to welcome in a winter of cold snowy days in the rocky mountains.  The snow will be melted by the hot Colorado sun in a few short hours, just in time for another winter storm to appear and send down another 3-5 inches.

It's days like these that get my taste buds aching for the best, most delicious Hot Buttered Rum recipe, in these here parts!! 

This recipe was shared with me about 15 years ago  at a holiday party.  I've made a few changes to suit my taste and would love to share this hot satisfying drink with you! 

Hot Buttered Rum Batter:

3 sticks salted butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
3 teaspoons nutmeg
1 gallon vanilla ice cream

Allow ice cream to sit at room temperature while preparing other ingredients, using very soft butter, blend the first 5 ingredients together until well Incorporated, add the softened ice cream and blend well.  The batter may be a little runny and chunky...this is not a problem as the chunks of butter melt beautifully in the hot water. Freeze mixture in plastic container overnight or until firm.

Hot Buttered Rum Drink:

Fill a 8 ounce glass with pipping hot water leaving about 2 inches head space, add 1 generous jigger spiced rum, and 1 ice cream scoop full of the frozen batter to the glass, don't stir...serve with whipped cream, 1 cinnamon stick, and freshly grated nutmeg..relax and enjoy a very special treat!

    Hot buttered rum, it is so weird that you posted that because I just went and got a huge bottle of rum at Total Liquor yesterday to make rum cakes, rum balls, and hot buttered rum this holiday season! I had never even heard of hot buttered rum until just the other day when I was watching an episode of the old Bob Newhart show and he asked for one, I thought, "That sounds sooooo good I have to find a recipe." And here one is, talk about Karma!

  8. Mmmm.......Looks divine! The classics are classic for a reason!

  9. Anne, what a great coincidence...I know you'll love this dreamy hot buttered rum! Just be careful, they're very easy to drink and they pack a powerful punch!

    LaDiva, you're absolutely right! Classic and simply divine! xo
