Hot Buttered Rum FAQ’s:

What kind of rum do I use for a hot buttered rum cocktail?

Where did Hot Buttered Rum originate?

  • In the late 17th century, Jamaica began importing molasses to the American colonies, where distilleries started turning it into rum. Rum became very readily available, and people started adding it to toddies and nogs, thus creating hot buttered rum and eggnog.

Can you heat rum?

      Definitely, Sabrina! Perfect after any long day, and a great way to kick back and relax. Cheers!
  2. OK, I don't have kids to bring trick or treating, so I'll have to use it as a relaxation tool for coming down from all that doorbell ringing all night. ;) [#PinItThurs]

  5. I could use one of these right now. LOL. if only I had bought ice cream today. sigh thanks for sharing these at Talking Tuesday!
  6. This looks DELICIOUS, and you are so right about the Halloween meltdowns. We had so much whining and crying about putting on costumes and getting out the door, that I was ready to call off trick-or-treating. Then, when we got home and I said it was too late to watch a Halloween show before bed, you would not believe the tantrum that ensued. Nightmare! I was so ready for a drink after all that was done, and I wish it would have been this one. Next time!
    • delightful.e.made@gmail.com says
      Oh, Andi! What a night!! Yeah, we've definitely had those in the past. Next time you will be set to kick back and relax. :)
  7. Pinned and I'm making this very soon ! Thanks for sharing ;-)
  8. Yum, this sounds delicious. Could you just use heavy whipping cream, heated, instead of the icecream and boiling water? Maybe add some vanilla extract.
  9. Oh my! I could use this today! Thanks for sharing at Create it or Bake it. Come back tomorrow and link up!

    This sounds amazing! I am hosting a cookie exchange with a friend of mine where we will also have kids. Has anyone tried this with apple cider instead of boiling water?

      Hi Andrea - I haven't tried it with apple cider, but I'm sure it would be wonderful!! Give it a try and let me know how it turns out. ~Erin

  13. This, a blanket, a book...good to go!
