How to Make Hot Buttered Rum

Coziest Gift Ever: Hot Buttered Rum Mix

A cup of hot buttered rum tastes like the holidays, and the cozy, spiced flavors are warming in more ways than one. What better edible gift to lead us into the weekend than a batch of homemade hot buttered rum mix? This mix is super-easy to make en masse then divvy up into small jars for all your festive friends.

To make the gift even more special, buy the recipient a nice bottle of dark rum to complete the cocktail. Be sure to include a recipe card with instructions on how to mix up a cup (and maybe a reminder that the mix should be stored in the fridge.)

Above recipe calls for 1 stick butter, which is only 1/2 cup. Is it 1/2 cup (1 stick) or 1 cup butter (2 sticks)?
