This is a hot buttered rum recipe I've had for a while but haven't gotten around to trying - it looks really good, though, might be just the thing for your bonfire!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
Cream together, and add 1 pint of softened vanilla ice cream. Store in the freezer. To serve, mix 3 T. rum batter, 1-2 oz. rum and fill the mug with boiling water.
This is the recipe I use for a Hot Toddy
1 oz Bourbon
1 Tbls. Honey
2 tsp. Lemon Juice (fresh)
Pour some boiling water into a mug to preheat. Dump out water. Place bourbon, honey and lemon juice in mug, add boiling water, stir to dissolve honey.
This is the recipe I use for Hot Buttered Rum
1 tsp. Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Lemon zest, minced
3 pinches ground Cinnamon
A pinch of ground cloves
A pinch of ground nutmeg (or a little freshly grated)
1 Jigger (3 oz) golden (or dark) rum
1 Tsp. Butter
Pour some boiling water into a mug to preheat. Dump the water. Placed the brown sugar, lemon peel and spices in the mug, add the rum followed by the boiling water. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the teaspoon of butter and stir to dissolved. This drink is also good without adding the butter.
You could make several of these drinks and take them to the bonfire in a thermos, just make sure you preheat the thermos before putting the drinks in it.
