This warm and cozy hot buttered rum is just what you need on a cold winter's night. Made with rum, butter, spices, and ice cream.
For the batter:
- 2 sticks of butter, room temperature
- 1/2 pound of brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cardamom
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 pint of vanilla ice cream, softened
For one serving:
- 2 tablespoons batter
- 1 1/2 ounces dark rum
- hot water or hot apple cider
- whipped cream (optional)
- grated nutmeg (optional)
Prepare the batter. Mix all the batter ingredients aside from the ice cream together in a bowl until smooth. A mixer makes it easy, especially if your butter isn't completely soft. But you can do it fine by hand, too. Then stir in the ice cream.
Transfer the batter to a container and put it in the freezer until needed.
To make a drink, in a glass, combine the batter, rum, and hot water or cider. Use a small whisk or fork to mix until no lumps remain. Top with whipped cream and grated nutmeg and serve.
The batter should keep for three months or more.
