Mount Gay Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

mount_gay_hot_buttered_rum.jpgAfter our success with the Glog recipe we tried before Christmas, we've been interested in checking out some other traditional cocktail recipes. Lo and behold, we get an email from someone representing Mount Gay Rum, with a recipe for hot buttered rum, something we've never tried. We like hot, we dig butter, and we love rum, so expect us to give it a try.

Check out the recipe after the jump, and happy rumming.

Tony's Hot Buttered Rum Batter
1 lb light brown sugar
1/2 lb unsalted butter (softened)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

To make Batter:

In a mixing bowl beat together softened butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract and spices until well combined. Refrigerate in an airtight reusable container for up to a month, or place in your freezer until ready to use.

To make Hot Buttered Rum:
In a pre-heated coffee mug combine 2 heaping tablespoons batter with 1 1/2 oz. Mount Gay Rum*. Top with boiling water and stir well to mix. Serve with a spoon.

Hint: It is best to make the batter in advance so the spices have an
opportunity to mingle. Be sure to remove batter from refrigerator at least 6 hours prior to serving to allow it to soften.

* Don't quote us, but this recipe might work with other brands of rum as well, if you're short on Mount Gay.

I doubt pouring boiling water in would substantially evaporate any alcohol. As soon as you pull the boiling water off the stove or out of the microwave, it has started to cool (i.e. it stops boiling). When you pour it into the buttered rum, it's going to have to warm up the batter, the rum, AND the cup. Plus, the rum is probably only 40% abv, so the boiling point would be higher than 72 deg. So enjoy the hot buttered rum and don't waste time with a "lukewarm buttered rum" 'cause you're worried about alcohol evaporation.

Hey I'd avoid pouring boiling water into the rum. Alcohol evaporates at 72 degrees Celsius, while water boils at 100 degrees Celsius.
