Today is (was) National Hot Buttered Rum Day, and since I don’t think I’ve ever actually tasted hot buttered rum, I thought…YOLO! Let’s make some hot buttered rum!
So I did:
And…nasty. Which honestly surprised me because it’s so pretty.
Everything was going great until the recipe told me to top off my delicious cream mixture with a pot of boiling water. I should have known better.
I do not encourage you to top this drink with boiling water.
Heat up some milk…make your hot buttered rum creamy and sweet instead of weird.
Happy National Hot Buttered Rum Day to you! Enjoy your weekend!
