Join thousands on this cold day in January in drinking one of the most delicious hot beverages, sure to put you in a fantastic mood and warm your soul.
Hot Buttered Rum is a cocktail containing rum, butter, hot water or cider, sweetener and spices. This concoction dates back to the 1650s when Jamaica began importing molasses to Colonial America, and New England began opening distilleries. Hot Toddies, Egg Nog, and Hot Buttered Rum were all created with a little love from the production of rum.
