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
Bottle dark rum
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.
