There’s nothing like sitting down in the fall or winter with a deliciously warm buttered drink.. Well, this keto hot buttered rum will hit the spot and keep you warm!
It’s actually fairly easy to make and takes about 10 minutes! All you have to do is melt the butter in a pot along with the water and spices before adding the rum just before serving! You can also make this in a slow cooker for an amazing browned butter sauce. I recommend cooking it on low without the alcohol and then keep it on the ‘warm’ setting after you add the rum.
You can also use bourbon which is equally delicious.. and of course add to your liking. I only used about 1/4-1/2 cup of rum but I’m also not a huge fan of big alcohol tastes so if you’d like to add more, I say go for it.
Now this drink is best served in small doses. Probably 1/4 cup or less. I’m only saying that because the calorie count can get fairly high very quickly!
