Hot Buttered Rum is a favorite winter drink because it is both sweet and warm, which is just the kind of comfort we gravitate toward on the coldest days of the year. It is an easy drink to make (main recipe here), though does take a little bit of time. This is where this Hot Buttered Rum Mix comes in handy. If you find yourself making the hot cocktail often - whether for yourself or at your bar - you may want to keep this mix in the refrigerator, then when you're ready for the drink, just add rum and hot water. It's that simple.
