To celebrate the end of this week, we are making a vintage classic!
Hot Buttered Rum!
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 T hot water
- 1 jigger rum
- 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.
