Hot Buttered Rum
Recipe type: Beverage
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1½ cups rum (preferably dark)
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar (light brown)
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 whole cloves
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • heavy cream (1 pint)
  • Confection sugar (to taste)
  • ground nutmeg &
  • cinnamon for garnish
  1. Put all ingredients, except rum, into Crockpot.
  2. Add 3½ cups hot water and stir well
  3. Cover pot and cook on Low for 5 hours. Or on High for 1 hour and Low for 2.5 to 3 hours.
  4. Right before serving stir in rum until fully blended
  5. Serve from pot in warm mugs with a scoop of whipped cream (see recipe below) and a dusting of nutmeg & cinnamon.
  6. Add confection sugar to your taste (I don’t make it too sweet for this as the buttered rum is very sweet)
  7. Whip the heavy cream & sugar with electric mixer on high until peaks form
  8. Notes: You can make this on the stove just mind you temperature keep it low I am not too sure how long it would need but it couldn’t take (even on the lowest setting) more than 3 hours. Just be careful not to let is burn. Use dark rum it gives the drink it's rich coloring. This came from Mrs. McGrath a woman I provided meal-on-wheels for. She was a sweet lady and we would talk about recipes for hours, she loved to cook and bake. She would tell me of her families grand holidays and well I sometimes wished I had been a part of them.
