"I love warm drinks in the winter time, especially when it's freezing outside. They are so comforting and drinking them warms you from the inside out. One of my favorite drinks, especially around the holidays, is a Hot Buttered Rum. This recipe is a non-alcoholic version and the mix can be stored in the refrigerator so that you can whip up a warm, comforting drink anytime that you want to relax and warm up. Of course a warm drink wouldn't be complete without a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of nutmeg on top. Mix yourself some up today and ENJOY!"
Hot Buttered Rum Mix
1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon rum extract*
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Mix all ingredients together until completely combined. Store in the refrigerator in a covered container.
To prepare a drink:
Mix 1-2 Heaping Tablespoons of mix (depends on your taste-My husband and I like it with 2 Tablespoons) with 12 ounces of HOT water until mix is dissolved. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with desired amount of nutmeg.
*Tip: You can substitute the desired amount of rum if you prefer an alcoholic drink.
