Hot Buttered Rum, I can honestly say I haven’t tried this drink and really don’t have a strong urge to. Just something about butter in a drink doesn’t sit will with my stomach, rum or not. Also the fact that it really doesn’t get cold here in southwest Florida, a hot drink is about as appetizing as a punch in the eye.
I know most of you Castaways live where the temps are chilly and the snow falls, so this rum recipe might be perfect on a cold night.
While I was doing a little research on Hot Buttered Rum recipes I found this crazy video. It’s a lady by the name of Hilah that is dressed either as a pirate wench or just has an outdated wardrobe. She knows about as much about rum as the pillow sitting next to me, but she’s kind of cute so I can tolerate this fault.
