Hot Buttered Rum – This classic hot cocktail is sure to warm you up with a delicious combination of milk, rum and spices. So wonderful and creamy!

Remember a couple weeks ago when I shared this delicious white chocolate hot cocoa? Well, if you thought that was delicious, you’re going to love the Hot Buttered Rum cocktail I’m sharing today!
My favorite way to make this drink is with Don Q Oak Barrel Spiced Rum and milk.
Don Q Oak Barrel Spiced is an extraordinary blend of rums aged at least 3 years in American white oak barrels. The rum has warm, radiant, rich, golden hues and a medium to heavy texture and features warm kitchen spices like vanilla, cinnamon and caramel that slowly give way to oaky notes and a touch of toasted coffee – a flavor profile that envelops your palate and warms your heart and soul.
It’s the perfect addition to this drink. With the holidays just around the corner, I dress up the buttered rum even more by rimming the glass with white candy shred.
It gives the glass a beautiful snow-like appearance that I absolutely love.
So many buttered rum recipes call for a batter that you need to make beforehand. This recipe doesn’t require a pre-made batter – just a few simple ingredients like butter, milk, rum and spices.
It’s the perfect cocktail to serve around the holidays and warms you up wonderfully from the very first sip.
To make the rum even more creamy, I use milk, rather than water like you’ll find in a traditional recipe. I garnish with a cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of cinnamon right before I serve these up to guests.
Prepare for the oohs and ahhs when you serve up this hot buttered rum.
Your guests will remember this drink long after the holidays. What are some of your favorite drinks to serve during the holidays? I’d love for you to share your ideas in the comments!
