I love winter. I don't love super cold winter, but I love the winter season because it marks my ability to drink hot beverages without sweating. If I could, I would drink hot buttered rums all year long, but I could get fat and sweaty. Ew. I can't be those things all year long...just during winter when I do my hibernating.
Hot buttered rums are salty, sweet, and loaded with belly-warming properties. I like to make mine with Spiced Rum to add extra depth to the drink. Go even crazier and load your coffee maker up with on-demand hot water to quickly replenish your drink as it cools off. Oh yeah, and this drinks pairs wonderfully with freshly baked gingerbread cookies...mmmm.
