Thaw Your Aching Bones With A Hot Buttery Rum

Its snowing buckets in Chicago tonight. It was a knuckle clencher riding home today. Yes, I am that crazy to ride my bike home through Chicago traffic on roads buried in snow. It would have taken me at least 2 hours to get home on the bus, where it only took an hour on my bike. Everyone was going so slow, I could weave in and out of traffic, fish tailing the whole way. When I finally got home, every muscle ached from the tension. What I needed was a nice hot stiff drink. Luckily, I had some Buttery Rum mix left over from our party. It was just what the doctor ordered.

Hot Buttery Rum Drink
enough for 8-10 mugs
  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs cream
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • Boiling water
  • All the Rum you can handle
Cream butter and sugar together and mix in spices and cream. Boil water. Fill a mug 1/2 of the way with boiling water and top off with as much rum as you like. Add 2 generous tablespoons of the mixture and stir until melted. Drink up while its hot and relax those bones!
