Sure this looks innocent...
My mom was a military wife and led the party train back in the day. She had a Hot Buttered Rum recipe that would render even the most hearty fighter pilot weak in the knees. I didn't have the time or the patience last nite to fix it up right. But this is a good knock off.
Quick Hot Buttered Rum
1. Fill a merry mug with a stiff shot of whatever booze you got on hand. I recommend your husband's most expensive sippin' bourbon. Or any kind of rot gut brandy or rum will do.
2. Add a teaspoon of brown sugar, a pinch of nutmeg, and a splash of vanilla.
3. Next add a scoop of vanilla ice cream
4. Fill the rest of the way with boiling water from the kettle.
Give a few quick stirs to melt the ice cream, sprinkle with a shake of cinnamon, and have some holiday cheer.
I'm writing this on Saturday morning before second breakfast, so you should probably wait until later in the day to make one up. What am I saying? Heck, its 5-O-Clock somewhere... Just pretend you're at Grandpa's - I think he's in the right time zone for an evening hot toddy.
Happy cup of cheer everyone!
