Hot Buttered Rum

Hot Buttered rum

Great for a post walk warm up, this hot buttered rum is a twist on the traditional Hot Toddy.


  1. First, combine the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and cloves in a mixing bowl.
  2. Beat with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined; this will be the base for your hot buttered rum.
  3. Use immediately, otherwise transfer the mixture to an airtight container and refrigerate until you’re ready to use.
  4. To make each drink, scoop 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons of the buttered spice mixture into a small mug or heat-proof glass.
  5. Pour 60ml of boiling hot water into the cup and stir together until the mixture is dissolved completely.
  6. Add 1-2 tablespoons of double cream and stir until creamy. Add water to taste or another drop of cream for a little extra richness.
