Extra Decadent Hot Buttered Rum
1 pound of powdered confectioner’s sugar
1 pound of brown sugar
1 pound of butter
a half gallon of vanilla ice cream
2 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
good quality spiced rum
Prep Day: Cream all ingredients except for rum together until very well blended. Store in the freezer until ready to use. This will last for quite some time.
Serve Day: When ready to serve, put some water on to boil. In each cup, put two tablespoons of the mixture and 1-2 shots of rum. (Personally, I prefer two, or at least one and a half. The mixture, in my opinion, is sweet enough to handle that much alcohol. Try it with one shot first though, and see what you think.) Pour boiling water over the top and give each cup a light stir. Drink while still fairly hot but not boiling, of course. If desired, you could top with whipped cream and some extra nutmeg. This is really a nice beverage to serve in cold weather and lets you pull off gracious entertaining on a moment’s notice. Enjoy!
