Happy National Hot Buttered Rum Day!!

January 17th, Happy National Hot Buttered Rum Day!!

It took a while… but, winter is finally in full swing. We’ve had a couple of Blizzards come through here that were fast and fierce.

It’s actually not that bad today. Nice and sunny and only -8 with wind chill!

I don’t know how cold it is for all of you.. possibly not cold at all! (I’m thinking of you, Robbie and probably Carole! Lol!)

But, let’s not bother going outside. Let’s not bother digging ourselves out.

Let’s just get cosy and comfy and drink some Hot Buttered Rum!!

  2. I remember those cold days from living in VT and don’t miss them. Stay inside and cozy, my friend. Do what we do here and just wait for it to melt. 😀 Thanks so much for this recipe. I went to a party once where the host was making these for everyone and they were so good! I always wanted the recipe. Favoriting this one!

    1. You’re welcome! It’s delicious! And it’s funny that you say to stay cosy inside. I was just telling my man that I may quit my job because it’s too cold to go out to it today. 😉 lol! I think that’s a valid quitting reason! Can I call it ‘un-favourable working conditions’??
