Oh my goodness, we have been very bad about updating the blog! I see that is has been almost 2 months since we posted our last drink. Well, I am going to remedy that situation.
Now that the Houston nights have turned chilly there are few better ways to warm up than dinking a Hot Buttered Rum. As you can tell from the name there are 3 ingredients (1) Hot, (2) Butter, and (3) Rum. OK, there actually is a fourth: sugar.
Take a normal size coffee mug (around 12 oz) out of the cabinet. Add 2-3 sugar cubes (approximately 1-1 1/2 teaspoons) to the mug. Mix sugar with 2 oz. of Rum. Add boiling water to the rum/sugar mixture. Top with a pat of butter. Adjust ingredients as needed and enjoy.
