Something Warm

Have been wanting to pick up blogging again since the wedding but had an extreme case of writer's block.  Because, you know, blogging is intense.

But tonight, while making a batch of homemade Hot Buttered Rum, I decided, I'm back.

Needing a place to release some creative juices.

So. Back to Hot Buttered Rum.  Have you had it?  So SO yummy.  It reminds me of when I was little  -  we would always celebrate Christmas at Aunt Lyndee's and Hot Buttered Rum was in everyone's hand.  Add a little rum for the adults and it turned into an affair to remember.

There are a handful of recipes out there but I went with this recipe because the vanilla ice cream sounded so yummy.



Ingredients

  • 1 pound butter
  • 1 pound brown sugar
  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Blend in brown sugar and confectioners' sugar. Remove from heat, and whisk in the ice cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour mixture into a plastic container, seal, and freeze.

  2. In a coffee mug, measure 1 tablespoon Hot Buttered Rum Batter and 1 fluid ounce of rum, then fill cup with boiling water. Stir, and sprinkle top of drink with nutmeg.

Enjoy!
