Hot Buttered Rum

One of my favorite hot drinks during cold weather I enjoy is a hot buttered rum. It contains several flavors I savor such as of dark rum with the molasses finish, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Combine all of these with some boiling water and you get a tasty treat with a spicy finish for you mouth and warms you all over.  Try one on a colder night while sitting next to the fire place.
