Small Christmas Present for My Readers

December 2nd, 2010 by Skip McGrath

Hot Buttered Rum

Its that time of year. Its the holiday season and with that comes the cold weather.  What could be better on a cold rainy or snowy day than a cup of Hot Buttered Rum.  Here is my maternal grandmother’s recipe.  I think I had my first sip from my Grandma’s cup when I was 14, but they would never give me my own mug of the good stuff until I grew up.  ENJOY!

  • 1 stick of softened unsalted butter
  • 1 Bottle dark rum
  • Boiling water
  • 2 cups of light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg (grate real nutmeg for best flavor)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt (If you don’t have Kosher salt, just use a pinch of regular table salt.

Cream the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a bowl. Refrigerate 1/2 hour. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the mixture into small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water, stir well and serve.

Just wanted to share twentymall.com with everybody as a place to sell your items with no listing fees. It also gives you a chance to donate items to the needy for the holidays.
