I am so excited about this post. Our guest today is Rebecca, my brilliant, talented and ridiculously creative sister. She is enduring the bitter cold in Minnesota right now and I can speak from personal experience to the effectiveness of this cocktail in warming body and soul. Her “letter” to me, made up of charming drawings done by Rebecca herself, includes her recipe for Hot Buttered Rum. I only wish they sold it in a can in the vending machines around Tokyo…
Thank you, Rebecca, for guest posting and I hope you will do it again soon! Cheers!
Hot Buttered Rum
Makes 4 servings
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups apple cider
2 cups dark rum
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon honey
Pour the water, cider and rum into a kettle or saucepan and bring to a boil.
While your brew is brewing, combine the butter, vanilla extract and honey in a small bowl.
Divide brew and butter into 4 pretty cups or mugs. Add a cinnamon stick and serve.
