Drink of the Week: Hot Buttered Rum

As the winter lingers on, your toes turn to ice, and your body starts to ache, you start to wonder. What can you possibly do to warm your senses? I know! Sip on a Hot Buttered Rum!


8 oz. apple cider
6 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 oz. lemon juice
2 oz. dark rum
1 tsp. butter

Usually you can find a buttered rum mix at grocery stores. Currently in Pullman, I saw some at Dissmores in the wine isle near the daiquiri mixtures. Most common grocery stores should have the mixture, but if not, these directions show how to make it yourself.

  • Pour apple cider, cloves, cinnamon stick and lemon juice into a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil
  • Pour into a mug
  • Add rum
  • Top with butter
  • Enjoy!
The mixture you get at stores is a thicker, creamier version of this Hot Buttered Rum, but both will warm you up in the cold winter chill. Pair it with sitting by the fire and a romantic movie, and your winter couldn't be better!
