To celebrate the end of this week, we are making a vintage classic!


Hot Buttered Rum!


Hot Buttered Rum
Author: The Merry Mixer, 1940
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 T hot water
  • 1 jigger rum
  • butter
  1. In warm tumbler, melt the sugar into the hot water. Add in the rum and a lump of butter the size of a marble. Then fill the glass with very hot water. Stir and serve.


But, instead of Old Quaker Rum, we are going to be slipping in a little bit of the stuff we brought back from Aruba, while there is some left. This weekend is the weekend I start baking for the upcoming Five Days of Fruitcake blitz for this blog, and I really don’t know how much of it is going to be left after that!



“So, what does it taste like?”


The Verdict: Tastes like Butter

From The Tasting Notes:

This reminds me of the first sips of a Tom & Jerry, before the mix itself has time to dissolve fully. Not bad. I would drink another one if it was free. Good holiday drink if you were out of eggnog and Irish Coffee.
