Sip a classic!
“A hot buttered rum is a perfect winter drink,” says bourbon educator Tim Knittel (Distilled-living.com). “It warms you with a little sugar, a little fat and, of course, a little alcohol. Plus, it’s easy and quick to make when friends and family drop in.”
To make Knittel’s rich hot buttered rum:
Add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to an empty glass and add 6 oz. boiling water. Mix in 41⁄ 2 tsp. brown sugar and stir to dissolve, then add 11⁄ oz. 2 barrel-aged rum (like Cruzan Single Barrel). Top with a generous pat of butter. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or two and enjoy!
