We make this for Christmas and we love it and our friends love it..its a great alternative to hot chocolate! Perfect for cold nights!
I like the flavor of this recipe, but whenever I make it according to the directions it is at best lukewarm instead of hot. I find it necessary to let the mixture come to room temperature before mixing beverages or even warm the mixed beverage in the microwave before serving. Do not add rum or alcohol before microwaving; add that as the last step.
I'm not going to rate because I haven't tried it, but Southern Living had a good Hot Buttered Rum recipe--with real rum--in a 1982 (I think, it might have been older like me) Christmas cookbook. I thought it was too sweet, so I just left out the powdered sugar and it tasted much better to me and didn't leave a coating in my mouth. It was more like a pound of butter, a box of brown sugar, a box of powdered sugar (which I omitted the second time I made it), a gallon of good French vanilla ice cream and I believe whipping cream. I'd like some right now!
This was honestly the first disgusting thing I have tried from Taste of Home. And I have made hundreds of their recipes! Far, far too sweet and it just was a big waste if ingredients.
BonnieCP. I'm not a rum drinker, but I would guess that you would reduce the hot water amount by the amount of rum--according to your taste--you would want in your serving. So you would still have 3/4 cup hot liquid, but part would be rum. You would probably leave out the rum flavoring.
