January 17, 2017 by frodelicious
Today is National Hot Buttered Rum day! And a perfect day for it too, since here in Upstate New York, it’s below freezing and snowing.
Here’s a recipe from Dale DeGroff which is both easy and a time-saver if you’re making a lot over the winter.
Hot Buttered Rum
2oz aged rum
0.75oz demerara simple syrup
1 tbsp spiced compound butter (see below)
Hot apple cider
Glass: any mug or glass appropriate for hot drinks
Preheat glass or mug by filling with hot water. Then drain the water and pour the syrup in the glass along with the compound butter and a little hot cider. Stir well to melt the butter. Add rum and more hot cider to fill, then give it a light stir with cinnamon stick. Then smile.
Spiced Compound Butter
1 lb softened butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
Add all ingredients to bowl and mix well. Store covered in refrigerator.
