Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

Been getting some questions about this so I figured I'd share mine and skorzy's (well, mostly Emerill's) recipe for hot buttered rum mix.

* 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
* 2 cups light brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
* Pinch ground cloves
* Pinch salt
* Bottle spiced or dark rum (we use Sailor Jerry's spiced rum, has a nice caramel flavor)
* Boiling water

In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug (filling about halfway). Top with boiling water (to fill the remaining half), stir well, and serve immediately.

Happy Hot Toddy Everybody!
