Hot Buttered Rum for Cold Blustery Days

So apparently this weekend is supposed to filled with snow and sleet and other cold, wet winter offerings. It’s a perfect time to snuggle up with some hot buttered rum. Personally, I make mine with Kraken black rum, but any kind of spiced rum works. Calico Jack is a tasty, cheaper option. Just don’t use white rum or we can’t be friends anymore.


  • 1 TBSP Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Butter
  • Dash Ground Cinnamon
  • Dash Ground Nutmeg or Clove
  • Hot Water
  • 1 Shot (or more!) of Spiced Rum
  • Lemon slice , cinnamon stick, or whipped cream to garnish

In your favorite (HANDMADE!!)mug, add the brown sugar, butter, spices, and rum. Heat the water in a kettle or in the microwave and fill the mug. Stir and garnish if desired.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Hmmm, if I used Kraken and put it in my Mary Coover dragon mug, I wonder what would happen?
