Hot Buttered Rum - The perfect Holiday Drink and Gift!

I created my Hot Buttered Rum drink recipe part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. 
All opinions are entirely my own. #SweetNLowStars

There is a chill in the air and one of my favorite drinks to warm up with is a 
Hot Buttered Rum.

My dad is infamous for making them
(even when it gets to a frigid 75 degrees in Southern California)
and I couldn't resist trying my own version.

It is creamy, soothing and tastes like the Holidays in a mug!
So easy to make and fun to serve.
A "butter-ball" of a spicy mixture goes in the bottom of your mug...

then topped with hot water...

and dark rum...

Sweetened up with Sweet'N Low and festive with a cinnamon stir stick, 
the cold winter doesn't stand a chance!

Package in a jar and tied with a bow, 
it is the perfect gift on it's own but pair it with a mug and rum and you will be a superstar...

Hot Buttered Rum
(makes approximately 4 servings)
cream together:
1 stick of butter at room temperature
1 packet of Sweet'N Low
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 Tablespoon nutmeg

To serve:
place one "dollop" of mixture in bottom of mugs
pour 1 1/2 cups of water in each cup, then add one ounce of dark rum
stir together and add more Sweet'N Low if needed to taste

To give:
Place in a small jar and keep refrigerated until ready to give.  Will keep at least a week.  

Wishing you a warm and buttery season!
