A warm up for this snowy Sunday in Big D

Usually, I am drinking hot toddies during the holiday season. But since it is snowing here in Big D today, there is nothing better than curling up with a warm cup of cheer. One of my favorites is a hot buttered rum.

Ingredients you will need:

1tsp brown sugar
1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
4-6 whole cloves
2 oz. dark rum (I used Cruzan aged rum, but Zaya is also good)
Boiling water
1 tsp butter


Place all ingredients except the rum, water and butter in a heatproof mug. Add the rum, then boiling water. Float the butter on top, and drink when the butter has completely melted.
