Reviews for Hot Buttered Rum
"I've made this many times. I use apple cider instead of the water. It is a great warmer upper when sitting around a campfire."
"This Hot Buttered Rum is a nice treat for Fall & Winter. I made this recipe for the first time this Christmas. My family loved it. I recommend this recipe!"
"This is a great recipe. Have made it several times since originally came out in the dec/Jan 2011 issue of TOH... I make this at the start of the cool winter months, and a batch lasts my husband and I all winter long. It's quick and easy to throw together on those cool winter nights, the batter keeps well. I highly recommend this recipe"
"This is an amazing recipe. It's worth getting fat for. Actually I used reduced fat ice cream and a bit less than the recipe called for, plus I used a bit less mix per prepared drink, and it was perfect. I intend to make this frequently during the cooler months!"
"Sorry. Also might use a lower calorie ice cream or frozen yogurt to drop the calories a little."
"Haven't tried it yet, but what about using the splenda/sugar items both white and brown to lower the sugar content? Might help us diabetics a little bit although still would be a welcome indulgence."
"This is delicious! What a calorie bomb though! I'm wondering if 1/2 the amount of mix would make one almost as good? I'm going to try that next time."
"It's a bit sweet, so we add 2 + Tbsp of rum to compensate per cup, but an excellent recipe! I've loaded up on it for the holidays."
