It is a lovely, heart-warming drink that's no trouble to make, if you follow the recipe as written. I promise.

I know you basically told what type of rum to use... but, generally speaking, what is a good rule of thumb for the type of rum to use in hot buttered rum? I want to try making it as the weather turns colder but the only rum I have is Bicardi Gold and Silver, which I'm pretty sure wouldn't make the best hot buttered rum. Or would they? I was thinking like a dark / spiced rum would be best... but I've never made it before so I really don't know. What are your suggestions?

Use Meyer's Dark Rum...simply the best for Hot Buttered Rum.

Reminds me of my first romantic cold-weather date with my (now) husband. Also of my first miserable hangover. Pretty much ruined my second date since it was brunch the next day. Should have known it was a good match when after trying to jolly me through brunch, he gave up, and remembered that I'd told him when I feel bad I like Lipton's chicken soup and ice cream. Instead of being discouraged with me not being up for brunch the next day, we ate a little, listened to some lovely harp music at the brunch location, but then stopped and bought me the above stuff, settled me in my apartment, and knew enough to leave a hung-over girl to herself. Thought he'd never call again, and now we've been together for over 30 years.

Sounds great, Linux. I make something similar, that I call a hot toddy, for someone who's got a bad cold and cough and needs to sleep. I use whisky and tea, though, and add a shot of lemon juice. It helps you sweat out the fever, soothes the throat, calms the cough and helps you sleep.
You may still be sick, but after one or two of these, you won't care.

I recently had hot buttered rum and asked about the recipie as it was unlike any I'd ever had.

Make a batter - Cream together in mixer:

1/2 gal good quality vanilla Ice-cream (softened)
1 lb butter (softened)
12 oz brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cardamom
2 tsp vanilla

You can freeze this or store it in fridge.

Assemble drink:

In warmed mug: fill 1/4 full of batter, add a generous shot of Meyers dark rum and then fill to top with boiling water. Sprinkle on nutmeg and serve.

Fabulous.

I was told this recipe has NO calories when the outside temp is below 17 and during the entire month of December.

This is the other one that I bumped and subscribed to. Have you tried either or both of these recipes? I've not done it yet, but tonight is the night.

Question on caloric intake: If it is December, AND below 17 does that mean it has negative calories?
