Drinks: Hot Buttered Rum – with a Batter – a Yummy Hot Toddy

December 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment

hotbutteredrumSomeone was asking the other day for a Hot Buttered Rum recipe, and this one came across my desk courtesy of Liquor.com.

It’s made with a “batter” that you freeze, and use throughout the hot-buttered-rum season. Anytime works for me – it’s so delicious.

Hot Buttered Rum

  • 1.5 ounces rum
  • 1 tablespoon batter (recipe follows)
  • Hot boiling water
  • Whipped cream or ice cream, for garnish

Add rum and batter to glass mug. Add boiling water to fill and stir. Serve with dollop of whipped cream or spoon of vanilla ice cream if desired.

Makes 1 drink.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

  • 1 pound butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1¬†tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened slightly

Add all the ingredients except the ice cream to a bowl and stir to combine. Add the ice cream and stir again. Transfer to a container with a lid, seal and store in the freezer. (Ideally, the batter is prepared at first frost and finished before the robins arrive. Bring it out for parties, or whenever the temperature drops below 25 degrees  Рor your comfort zone.)

    I didn’t want to put this on Facebook but I had an unfortunate experience at Table 26 in WPB last week that I wanted to share with you. When I called the manager the day following my experience there; I was told that when I made a reservation for a table –“I entered into a contract.”
    My girlfriend and I met for dinner and sat at the bar enjoying drinks. While I had arrived on time; she was late and we were late sitting down at our table.
    The food was good, the service excellent. We had finished dinner and my friend was sipping her drink–the hostess asked to vacate our table and move to the bar. Apparently we had overextended the alloted time for our table.
    When I called the next day and asked to talk with the manager I was told that we did not fulfill our agreement. I’ve pondered this experience and would never return. While I’m glad they are doing well….I’d prefer someplace without the rules. This idea of entering into a contract was a pretty strange concept to me. Any thoughts?
