It’s Adult Beverage time folks! After a 20 + year absence our neighbors recently re-introduced me to Hot Buttered Rum. Sparky had never had this delectable concoction and after a few tentative sips, we have a new convert. Definitely a “GOLLLLLLYYYYYY, it is COLD out there drink, it really hits the spot after ice skating ( you really don’t want to have one before skating….trust me on this one). Or maybe after skiing or shoveling snow or after THINKING about shoveling snow. How about after white knuckling it over Sherman Pass in a blinding snowstorm when it’s ten below? Oh yes….definitely after that one! Our neighbors use a mix that they buy online for their Rum, but it is dreadfully expensive so I came up with this freshly made version that is positively ambrosial and very inexpensive. Goes together in 2 minutes flat so it meets all my requirements of fast, cheap and fabulous. Here’s a toast to Winter!
This is what we will need.
