The Hot Buttered Rum is a hot and spiced cocktail, which is good for sipping by the fire after a big dinner.
Butter? Butter and Rum you said? Who would have thought huh? Well, although rum is great for all those things related to beach, summer, exotic fruits and tropical drinks, the Hot Buttered Rum is a Winter Cocktail, exactly as the Mediterranean Spiced Toddy or the Hot GroundApple. It is the kind of drinks that may be the best choice for those days that grow shorter and the air gets crisp. Whether you’re skiing at the lodge, or just want to warm up your customer’s heart and body during a cold winter night, the Hot Buttered Rum is sure to make your heart smile.
