What a lovely treat. I scaled this down to make a mug for myself. Wish I would have made the whole recipe, it was so good. Flavorful, spicy, silky and smooth with a nice burst of butter. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that I will be enjoying often.

I used your recipe as my first attempt at making Hot Buttered Rum. It is very good! It's sweet, smooth and buttery. I'd have to say this will become a must have during the winter for years to come. Thanks for posting this recipe.
