hot buttered rum

So I had a root canal about a week ago, which has slowed down my blogging considerably. The pain in my jaw, however, has sparked a new hobby…

I’ve also been reading a lot about Victorian era street food. It’s not all as ghastly as what I related in the previous post. Many of the baked goods of that era were taking advantage of, and experimenting with, the new flavours being introduced to Britain from the far corners of the Empire.

So, to blend these two seemingly unrelated topics, I present a recipe for hot buttered rum:

 6  cloves  (whole)
• 1 1/2 oz.  dark rum 
• 1 generous tbsp.  brown sugar 
• 1  Cinnamon stick 
 Boiling water 
 butter 
 Grated nutmeg 
 Lemon peel 

Mixing instructions:
Rinse a large mug with boiling water and add brown sugar, cinnamon stick, and a lemon peel studded with cloves. Pour in a little boiling water and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add rum and fill with boiling water. Stir, then place pat of butter on top of drink, and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.

 

Cheers!

    This sounds good – bet it would be a great “wind me down” drink at the end of a long ,stressful day. Thanks for a great share!

    I totally agree. Especially if you are in the kitchen, it would be more sanitary not to have hair anyway. They better put that in their dress code policy if they want it to stick from now on.
