Winter Warmer: Hot Buttered Rum

With the first snowfall of the winter season upon us, what better way to warm up than with a glass of hot buttered rum. This drink is rich, syrupy, and deeply comforting for all the senses. It is also a great alternative to mulled wine or spiked eggnog, the traditional holiday favourites.
