Hot Buttered Rum Single Serving

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Nothing sets the mood on a cold winter day better than a roaring fire and a hot buttered rum. This is a single-serving recipe. If done right, this drink tastes like melted caramel swirling over your tongue. That makes it too sweet to drink with a meal, but also one of the best dessert drinks ever made. Drink these in moderation."

  1. Place butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla extract in the bottom of an Irish coffee glass. Pour in rum and hot water. Stir.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I've never used the optional spices, and I have always used light rum. I also don't exactly measure my butter or brown sugar. I just place the dollop of butter in the mug along with the teaspoon of brown sugar. It's definitely a drink to warm you up.

I made mine with Captain Morgan Rum and added a bit more than a 'pinch ' of each spice. I also added more brown sugar and a splash of heavy cream. Very easy and quick to make. Thank you for sha...

Perfect as written. I used all the spices. Thank you for the recipe.
