How to Make Hot Buttered Rum



Hot buttered rum is a winter favorite in my household. Perfect for a holiday party or just a cozy night staying in, this hot drink will keep you warm even with a foot of snow on the ground! And besides being a delicious treat, this drink is very simple to make.




For one serving of hot buttered rum:

  • 1 mug boiling water
  • 1 slice butter (can be salted or unsalted, depending on your preference)
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 dash cinnamon
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  • 1 ounce dark rum

Bring a kettle of water to boil. Meanwhile, muddle in the bottom of a mug the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Stir in the rum. Add the boiling water and stir. Your hot buttered rum is ready to serve!

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever had buttered rum. I was a captain and coke girl back in my 20s so I might love it. I just need a drinkin partner :)
