I love a Hot Buttered Rum on Christmas morning but after moving to this town I could not find Trader Vicks Hot Buttered Rum Batter anywhere! I was very disappointed so my sister went searching on-line and found the exact recipe. I have been making it ever since and it has become a tradition to serve it on Christmas morning to my guests. Please note too that a Hot Buttered Rum is delicious with or without the rum so everyone can enjoy this warm comforting drink!

HOW TO MAKE A HOT BUTTERED RUM:

Preheat mug with boiling water. Drain and add 1 heaping teaspoon of Rum Batter (will melt a bit). I usually use more batter. It's a preference thing!

Add 1.5 oz. Rum

Fill mug with HOT water.

Traditionally one would hit the drink with a hot poker (they use a large metal swizzle stick heated up. It makes for a nice show at a bar...and a nice sizzle.)

Garnish with an 8" stick of cinnamon. Optional but will add much more cinnamon flavor?

Enjoy but please drink responsibly by never drinking and driving!!
