We made this buttered rum the center of a neighborhood gathering. It was a real hit! We all loved it. I made exactly as the recipe is written until the last step - everyone got to adjust their own rum level. My daughters new favorite drink now is hot buttered mulled water! Will save this recipe and make again many times. Thanks!
also thought this was great but a little too sweet. will halv sugar next time! was away for the holidays and didn't have any cardamom pods so improvised and put about a tsp or so in a coffee filter and tied with a twist tie (should of put the cloves in there too!) used captain nelson spiced rum and topped with whipped cream in a can. tell ya what, it sure didn't last long! brought back some memories for an uncle who hadn't had it homemade since '88! THANKS Rita!!
I found the spices right, but the amount of sugar was too much and it was too runny for my tastes. With a few mods, I enjoyed it.
