Hot Caramel Buttered Rum is Friday’s Featured Cocktail!

Hot Buttered Rum is a cocktail that dates back to the time of George Washington and the birth of America.  The American Heritage Cookbook says hot buttered rum “found its way into domestic politics” –apparently the drink was used to sway constituents and influence the vote.  Not a bad idea,  but if you are looking for a tasty twist on the traditional try taking it to a new level with Ron Abuelo Añejo rum and Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka.  The Founding Fathers would be proud.

Stay Warm, Enjoy and Cheers!



  • 3 oz Ron Abuelo Añejo
  • 1 oz Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka
  • 2 Tbsp stick Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon Stick


Add all ingredients (excluding rum and vodka) into a hot drinking cup or mug. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined and have formed a batter. Add Ron Abuelo Añejo rum and Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka. Pour in hot water (1 cup or more to personal taste) and stir vigorously until the mixture has dissolved. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
