Here’s my easy 3-step method to making perfect hot buttered rum mix!
Nothing says “winter is coming” quite like cozying up with a steaming mug of hot buttered rum. This concoction of butter, ice cream, sugar and rum is simultaneously warming, filling, and perfectly spiced.
To make Hot Buttered Rum you just need two things: Rum and Hot Buttered Rum Mix.
I always thought that making hot buttered rum batter would be time consuming and tedious. A few years back my mom and I decided to make a bunch of homemade coffee infused liqueur (faux-Kahlua) and I felt like it took alllll daaaayyyy.
I guess I just had it in my head that homemade cocktail shenanigans were super laborious!
Then, last winter, we were having lunch in this British pub in town where they were serving a Hot Buttered Rum Bread Pudding a their dessert special. You know I had to order it! I’ve been waiting almost a year for the weather to get cold so I could recreate that fateful dessert.
I’ll be sharing my bread pudding recipe with you in just a few days, so you’re going to want to make this mixture soon so you can be prepared for it.
Plus, you really can’t beat an old fashioned hot buttered rum, so I’ll forgive you if you want to skip the whole dessert thing and just go straight for the booze.
Alright, without further adieu, let me tell you exactly how easy it is to make hot buttered rum mix!
