On a cold winter evening I love nothing more than a nice cup of Hot Buttered Rum. You know that recipe that has all the spices, butter and brown sugar mixed into a half gallon of French vanilla ice cream? Yeah, well this isn't that recipe.
If I made that stuff I'd eat all with a spoon and it would most likely never make it in a cup. Not to mention I'd never be able to leave the house because I wouldn't fit through the door. Ha, ha!
This recipe is a pretty good one minus the ice cream and what I like is that I can make it right in my cup and just one serving at a time. It is simple, thrifty and downright delicious!
Hot Buttered Rum
1 tsp butter
1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 shot glass of spiced rum
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
In a coffee cup or mug place butter, sugar and rum. Fill cup with boiling water. Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir and enjoy!
Not as decadent as the ice cream version to be sure, but not a bad substitution either.
