Happy Hour: Hot Buttered Rum

As much as I hate to admit it, winter has arrived. I can't leave the house without wearing at least two long sleeved layers, stuffing a scarf and a pair of gloves into my over sized handbag, and throwing a jacket over my arm. There are some perks to winter: steaming soups, cozy fires, and hot cocktails. Today's happy hour drink, with its steaming dark rum, is like a warm blanket in a mug.
