Hot and Spiced Vanilla Rum Drink

A hot cup of Spiced Vanilla drink with Buttered Rum is the perfect companion to winter evening, don't you think?! Thanksgiving is around the corner, and this is one drink your guests would love at the table. Rich and creamy, yet flavored with rum, vanilla and spices to soothe your entire body, this drink is way better than a Starbucks coffee!! The cinnamon and nutmeg are also beneficial to your body. And the best part, you can make the spice mixture and store it for the entire winter so that you can appease to your cravings during anytime of the season.

1/2 cup boiling water
1 ounce dark rum (optional)
1 large tbsp hot buttered rum mixture (recipe below)

Vanilla Spice Mixture
2 cups brown sugar
2 sticks butter, room temperature
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg


Hot Buttered Rum Mixture
Place the sugar, butter, ice cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg in your food processor and blend until smooth.

You can preserve this in a container and freeze it. It will not hard freeze, and can be easily accessed when preparing the drink.

When you are ready to serve it, combine the rum, boiling water and the frozen hot buttered rum mixture in a heat-resistant glass. Stir well. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon and serve immediately. (pic courtesy barbara adams)

This is so comforting! My one hand holds this drink, while the other is wrapped around my favorite book (Harry Potter!) and I'm tucked comfortably in my rocking chair, with a view of the sky as twilight slowly blends into dusk, and the sky changes hues from blue to lavendar, to pink and finally violet!

Try this Spiced Hot Vanilla-Rum Drink for yourself and feel the difference! Its a perfect Thanksgiving cocktail, by the way!
