Although mulled wine and toddy have European origin, hot buttered rum is a specific American beverage. It appeared in i1650s, when Jamaica began importing molasses to Colonial America and New England where distilleries were opening. The colonist couldn't resist adding distilled rum to their hot beverages such as eggnog and toddy, thus created hot buttered rum.

Hot buttered rum is made of special batter that can be frozen and kept for a year. The batter consists of brown sugar, unsalted butter, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. All the ingredients are mixed together and when it's time to make beverage, a spoon of batter is added to hot water. After that add rum and stir your drink. Now enjoy it.

If you prefer spicier or milder taste, use light run or spiced rum instead of dark one. The recipe is the same, just change alcohol to the one you prefer.
