A mixed drink containing rum, butter, hot water or cider, sweetener and spices (typically cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves), hot  buttered rum  in especially popular during the fall and winter months and is sometimes associated with the holiday season.

In the United States, hot buttered rum’s history dates it back to the colonial days.  It was in the 1650′s when Jamaica began importing molasses to Colonial America and New England began opening distilleries where the colonists then began adding distilled rum to hot beverages such as toddies and nogs, creating beverages such as hot buttered rum, eggnog and others.

Hot buttered rum is often made by blending a buttered rum batter with dark rum.  Dark rum is rum which has been barrel aged for a long length of time to retain a deeper, molasses flavor.  Those that prefer a more mild or a spicier taste, may chose the option of using light rum or spiced rum mixed with the batter.
