How To Make Hot Buttered Rum That Will Warm You Up on Chilly Nights


If you’ve never had hot buttered rum, you’re missing out! The hardest part of making hot buttered rum is making the “batter.” Few people know that you have to make the batter for hot buttered rum separately, and then you freeze it. When you’re ready to serve up some drinks, you take some of the frozen batter, mix it with rum and boiling water, and voila!

It’s perfect for serving up over the holidays or just on a cold night, because why not?

How To Make Hot Buttered Rum:


  • 1 lb brown sugar
  • 1 lb confectioners’ sugar
  • 1quart vanilla ice cream
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Rum
In a large pot, melt the butter, then blend in the brown sugar and confectioners’ sugar. Remove from the heat and stir in the ice cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture into a plastic container and freeze. When you’re ready to serve your drinks, add a tablespoon of the butter batter and 1 fluid ounce of rum, then fill the rest of the cup with boiling water. Stir, sprinkle with nutmeg and enjoy!
