Single Serve Hot Buttered Rum

on December 21, 2013

Well, it’s day 8 of my annual Christmas cold and it’s getting a bit tiresome. The zinc and C has helped but I’m thinking I need something more serious. Before I break out the (incredibly *gakky*)  Nyquil, I’m going to try something a bit more palatable. A Hot Buttered Rum should do the trick. Warm, creamy, soothing goodness.

Since I’m a light-weight, when it comes to drinking, I’m thinking one should do it for tonight. So here’s a recipe for a single serve. You can certainly adjust it to your taste…

  • 1 tsp. soft Butter
  • 1 Tbs. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbs. Confectioners (Powdered) Sugar
  • 1 oz. Spiced Rum
  • 2 Tbs. Caramel Swirl Ice-Cream (or use other flavors)
  • 1/2 cup boiling (or really hot) Water


  1. Mix the butter, brown sugar, and confectioners sugar in a large mug.
  2. Add the rum, then ice-cream, then boiling water.
  3. Stir until the butter and ice-cream have melted.
  4. Serve warm.

Pretty simple, eh? Nighty-night all.

(Oh, and when you’re feeling better and have friends over or just want to do something special for yourself, try serving this in a brandy snifter or wine glass. Very elegant).
