We live in a super cool neighborhood and have super cool neighbors who understand the importance of sharing booze at the holidays.
From the folks next door came warm joy in a basket – all of the essentials for hot buttered. rum. Talk about a great hostess or neighbor gift. It is not only homemade, but seasonal and delicious.
In the basket:
Jar of spiced butter – Butter mixed with dark brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and orange zest. Our neighbors are too cool to measure. Put in lots of spice. It is so decadent we want to spread it on toast. * Note coconut oil can be substituted for butter.
1 bottle o’ rum
Cinnamon sticks for garnish.
Spoon 1 – 2 Tbs in a standard sized mug.
Add 2 ounces of rum.
Top with boiling water and stir.
