Hot Buttered Rum

Rhea’s Rundown

Not in the mood for champagne? Okay, so maybe you’re always in the mood for champagne. I know I am. After the champagne toasts, this drink will make the perfect nightcap, or even a nice way to wake up on the first day of 2015. It’s simple to make and you probably already have most of the ingredients lying around the house. So sit back and let this charming cocktail warm and relax you, but be warned: it is uncanny just how relaxing this drink is, it knocks me out after just one drink!

Ingredients – Makes 1
  • 1.5 ounces rum
  • Hot spiced cider
  • Pinch of mulling spices
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Lemon slice
  • Unsalted butter


1. Combine ingredients in a mug, topping with a small pad of butter in the amount of your choosing.
