Have A Sip Of: Hot Buttered Rum


The batter alone is simply divine. This is my mom's recipe and even though I do not consider Rum a tasty treat, you can't go wrong with this at the holidays. I am not implying your holidays will be improved by large consumptions of rum, but should you need a sip to help you relax, here is an antidote even St. Nick would imbibe on. Enjoy.


HOT BUTTERED RUM MIX

1 pound butter (I use Land O Lakes)
1 pound brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 quart vanilla ice cream 

Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, add 1 quart partly melted ice cream. Mix well. Store covered in the freezer.  In a mug add 1 shot of rum (I use Cruzin Clipper 151 proof. Have also used Captain Morgan's Spiced). 2 heaping tablespoons of mix (or to taste) and boiling water. Scrape fresh nutmeg on the top.

"divine" is always good!

I'm worried about the 'Rum' 'cause I don't drink strong drink...but topping it off with 'nutmeg' may just be the trick!

Cathi said...

JennyMac~ I hope that come New Year's Day, you'll be providing a slim-quick recipe each day.
Cabbage soup diet?
Celery diet?
Cayenne pepper with tabasco diet?

Mr. Charleston said...

I, for one, will definitely improve my holidays with rum of some kind. Tonight it's rum and egg nog. Tomorrow... who knows. Merry Christmas JennyMac.

Seriously - those ingredients are dessert for the week or the month! I can't think of anything that wouldn't taste better mixed with them...except maybe hamburger.
