Ingredients

How to make it

  • Beat sugar and butter together until creamed
  • Beat in nutmeg, salt, cinnamon, and cloves
  • To make a Hot Buttered Rum:
  • Preheat mug with boiling water.
  • Drain, and add 1 heaping teaspoon of Rum Batter (will melt a bit)
  • Add 1.5 oz Puerto Rican Rum
  • Fill mug with HOT water.
  • Traditionally one would hit the drink with a hot poker (they use a large metal swizzle stick heated up.. makes for a nice show at a bar.. and a nice sizzle..)
  • Garnish with an 8" stick of cinnamon...
  • (needed... as it adds much more cinnamon flavour)

    This is wrong. I too found this photo in my newly acquired Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide (1972) - after finding a bunch of these for sale at yard sales and consignment shops. I was intrigued. But after hunting for some confirmation that hot buttered rum is what the device was used for, I discovered that it is a fire starter. And somehow I now own one. I think the most interesting question is how this photo showed up in the Trader Vic's book?!? See one for sale here. <http://www.gardeners.com/buy/cape-cod-fire-starter/35-438.html>

    Thanks very much. I lost my copy of Trader Vic's Bartender Guide years ago and I have been missing this great recipe. Very simple and very delicious.

    Hello, again. I like your hot buttered rum recipe. I used to make it 15 years ago. But I lost the recipe in the shuffle. Thanks for finding it for me....Cheryl

    I lost my recipe several years ago, and this sounds very similar - when the cold weather returns to our neck of the woods this fall, THIS drink will be ready to warm to soul!!
