Recipe by Halcyon Eve

A delicious, simple drink for a cold night that will warm you right up from your nose to your toes! Prep time is just estimated time to make the mix. The number of servings will vary, depending on just how heaping your tablespoons are, but you should get close to 100 servings from a full batch, which is approximately 12 cups of mix. I've estimated from 100-150 servings, based on using anywhere from 1 1/4 Tbsp per serving to nearly 2 Tbsp per serving. The recipe can be easily scaled back to make less--it's pretty forgiving. Please note that the nutritional information is not entirely accurate, as it divides the single serving of rum into 100 servings, which means it really has a few more calories than shown.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make mix, cream butter and sugar together until well combined. Add ice cream and mix together until the mix is an even consistancy. Store in a container in the freezer.
  2. Note that this makes quite a lot of mix, but it can be scaled back.
  3. To make each serving of hot buttered rum, place a heaping tablespoon of mix into a mug. Add 1 ounce of rum (give or take, according to taste!) and fill mug with boiling water. Place cinnamon stick in mug to use to stir the ingredients together.
