Hot Buttered Rum
Serves: 20-30
Makes about 4 cups
  • For Hot Buttered Rum mix:
  • ½ pound grass fed butter (1 stick), or ghee
  • 1 batch Dairy Free Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, or 2 cups store bought ice cream of choice (preferably clean dairy free ice cream or ice cream made with grass fed dairy)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • For cocktail:
  • 6 oz boiling water
  • 2 oz rum
  • 2-3 Tbs Hot Buttered Rum mix
  1. For Hot Buttered Rum Mix: Set butter and ice cream out on counter to soften for about 30 minutes. Cream together butter and coconut sugar in stand mixer or with hand mixer in a large mixing bowl (you can also use a blender if it's not coming together well). Add vanilla, spices and ice cream and mix to combine. Transfer mix to a freezer safe container (wide mouth mason jars work great) and store in freezer for use throughout the holiday season.
  2. For cocktail: For each serving add 2 oz rum and 2-3 Tbs Hot Buttered Rum mix to your favorite holiday mug. Pour 6 oz boil water over the top and stir until mix is melted. Sprinkle with cinnamon and enjoy!
