Hot Buttered Rum

Recipes by Crimsonwolf

Hot Buttered Rum



1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoonground cinnamon

1 cup vanilla ice cream, softened

6 jiggers of rum, or to taste

boiling water


In a small bowl, beat butter together with brown sugar, powdered sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Beat in the softened ice cream. Pour the ice cream into a freezer-proof container, seal, and freeze. When ready to serve, put about 1/3 cup of the ice cream mixture into individual mugs. Add 1 jigger of rum and cup boiling water to each. Stir well and serve. Some people like to add an extra dollop of whipped cream, but this is not necessary.


Variations: Place 2 jiggers dark rum, a twist of lemon peel and a cinnamon stick in an ale mug. Fill with boiling hard cider, add a pat of butter and stir with a cinnamon stick.
