Very tasty. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I substituted 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp ground ginger and 1/16 tsp each nutmeg and ground cloves. I omitted ground orange peel. I used Captain Morgan's spiced rum in mine---very yummy. Also the kids enjoyed the mix made with hot water only. Read More

Very Very good. Prefer this over the overly heavy ice cream types. Doubled the spices and orange peel with great success too. Read More

This was wonderful. I didn't expect much without the ice cream but what an after dinner treat it was. I didn't have any oranges so I left out the orange peel. Very easy and worth it. I used vanilla rum to add the extra kick. Read More

Love the orange peel in this recipe. I added a heaping tablespoon of vanilla ice cream and it is now perfection in a cup. Cheers! Read More

I just made this and it's lovely. I didn't add the orange peel so I think I will definitely do that next time. I also didn't have any rum but it's pretty delicious by itself.: Read More

Excellent recipe! I was thrilled to find this as an alternative to the "add ice cream" recipes. I didn't have orange peel and used a couple drops of orange extract instead--worked perfecly--or so says my husband (self proclaimed Hot Buttered Rum Expert)! Yummy--thanks! Read More
