Warm up with Hot Buttered Rum

When the winter weather is getting you down, try making a hot buttered rum recommended by Tim Won, manager of Sid’s Discount Liquor. This recipe is from the Food Network.


1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 c. light brown sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. grated nutmeg

Pinch ground cloves

Pinch salt

Bottle dark rum

Boiling water

In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water (to fill the remaining half), stir well and serve immediately.
