It’s officially day five of The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas. Today I’m bringing you another warm and comforting drink – Chai Spiced Hot Buttered Rum.
I have never had buttered rum before and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it tasted. I mean, lets be serious. It’s butter. You’re drinking butter.
However, don’t let that turn you off. It really is tasty. I don’t know if I would recommend drinking them all day everyday, but holiday time is a time for gluttony.
Am I right?

In a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, chai spice blend, 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. Top with boiling water, stir well and serve immediately.
