Hot Buttered Rum
It's a little work getting this one done, but the flavor is great. . .however, I've allus thought HBR's were a bit "light" in the texture department.
2/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup spiced rum
2 cups boiling water
4 sticks cinnamon, for garnish
Using an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar, butter, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a medium bowl until blended and smooth.
Transfer the mixture to a 4-cup (or larger) measuring cup.
Add the rum and then 2 cups of boiling water.
Stir until the butter mixture dissolves.
Divide the buttered rum among 4 mugs.
Garnish with the cinnamon sticks and serve.
(You COULD skip most of the work and just buy a tub of HBR mix from the store!)
