In my opinion, there is nothing more charming than an old family tradition passed down through generations and continually celebrated by the old and the young. In my family, the Soldo family, that tradition would be Old Fashioned Hot Buttered Rums at Christmas time. One sip of this sweet creamy brew and newcomers are asking for the recipe before they even get to the bottom of the cup.
Made with vanilla ice cream, and loads of butter, brown sugar, powdered sugar, and passionately kissed with a shot of brandy and rum, this holiday drink will warm you up all the way down to your toes. Now, for those who prefer to go light on the alcohol, you can adjust the shots to your liking. We haven’t forgotten the kiddos in the festive holiday tradition. In our family, the 20 and under crowd get to enjoy a “Hot Buttered” (no alcohol) drink right along with the adults. It’s an irresistibly delicious treat for the entire family.
December is a month that most of us either host or attend a celebration or two. There are some celebrations that call for “The good stuff” when it comes to alcohol. The good news is, you can break out the cheap stuff when it comes to brandy and rum in this recipe. The star ingredient in Hot Buttered Rums isn’t necessarily the quality of the alcohol, (although it doesn’t hurt) but rather the sweet buttery goodness that makes this drink worthy of more than one visit to the hot buttered rum bar. Cheers and Merry Christmas! Thanks for the recipe mom!
