Hot Buttered Rum Batter
Hot Buttered Rum is the perfect winter drink, there’s nothing like this warm cozy cocktail on a cold winter night. If I had to explain it I would say it’s creamy, buttery with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Then you add the spiced rum that warms everything as it goes down. This is traditionally an alcoholic drink but you could substitute a little vanilla for the rum.
The batter by itself is delicious, it’s kept in the freezer.  I’ve been known to scoop out a spoonful and eat it just by itself, that’s how good it is. Don’t ever buy the tub of hot buttered rum batter from the store, it’s grainy and awful. I wouldn’t even call it hot buttered rum batter, it’s that bad.

Here’s how to make the best homemade hot buttered rum mix:

1 LB Soft butter, not margarine
Mix very well until creamy, make sure all the sugar granules are gone, if not it ends up grainy. You definitely should use a standup mixer, it eventually gets so thick a handheld mixer can’t handle it.
1 Qt Good quality Vanilla Ice Cream (don’t melt it, just soft enough to spoon out and mix)
1 Tbsp Nutmeg
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Mix these last 3 ingredients until creamy, it will be very thick.
Put in a plastic container and freeze, so when you want one just scoop out a large spoonful (I use a lot) put it in a mug, add a shot of spiced rum and fill the rest of the mug with boiling water. Mix until everything is melted and it has a creamy consistency.
This is a large batch so you could put portions into cute containers and give them to friends as gifts or just cut the recipe in half.
 Enjoy! I know I do!!!

  1. Question: My husband and I would love this with rum. My sister and son not so much. Would you make this with JUST hot water or is there another non-alcohol alternative to add?

    1. It’s good with hot water or by the spoonful, lol. I make mine with brandy. Whiskey is good, too. You could maybe try in coffee, tea or cider for non alcohol beverages.

  2. My husband and I used to take this same recipe with us on our boat when it was cold outside. So glad to have found the recipe again!! My friends will be enjoying with us this with us this holiday…. thanks for posting.
