Spiced Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

Happy Hour: Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered RumCan't fathom sipping an iced cocktail as the temperature continues dipping? Then settle in with a batch of steamy buttered rum instead — it'll warm you to the core, even in bone-chillingly cold climes. This recipe for hot buttered rum is the best I've ever had, in part because it calls for a spiced butter as its base.

This recipe also incorporates ground ginger, grated orange zest, and a fresh squeeze of orange juice for zing at the very end; all of these truly round out the typical wintry spice notes. I recommend using a good-quality spiced rum, like Cruzan's 9 Spiced Rum, to boost flavor even further. Cuddle up to a cup when you read on.
