Hot Buttery Rum – Yum!

Yum is right!

Wait till you try this drink!  Have a mug of it when you’re outside on a chilly day, all bundled up, watching the kids ice skate…


So decadent and creamy and buttery…warms you right down to your toes!


Ok.  We’ll need 1 cup of white sugar, poured into a medium pot…


then add 1 cup of packed brown sugar…


and lastly 1 cup of salted butter.

Cuppa, cuppa, cuppa…easy, easy, easy to remember.  Cuppa white, cuppa brown and cuppa yellow!


Cook over low heat until butter is melted, stirring off and on.  This will take around 8-10 minutes.


And will look like this gorgeous mixture.  But wait…it only gets better…

Remove from heat and add…wait for it…


Oh yes.  I went there!  Break out that delicious vanilla ice cream…


and add 2 cups of it to the mixture in the pot…


stir until ice cream melts and you just want to cry thinking about how amazing this is going to taste and wondering at what cost…


until it reaches this perfect golden color.

Next you’ll want to, really want to, add a little less than 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a little less than 1 teaspoon of nutmeg.


Mix together.


And don’t be afraid of the cloves.  They’re essential to the magic that happens in your mouth when you take that first sip!


Add about 1/4 teaspoon cloves and stir.


Find your largest, most favorite mug…


fill the bottom quarter of it with some of that golden syrup,


add about an ounce of “la pièce de résistance”, rum! …


top with boiling water…


stir with a spoon, and try very hard not to burn your lips in your haste to taste that luxuriously self-indulgent first sip!

Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
