A hot toddy is a warm cocktail made with boiling water, sugar and spices, plus other ingredients—hot buttered rum is one such variation. (Read the History of Hot Buttered Rum.) Celebrate National Hot Toddy Day on January 11th with a luscious cocktail from Ron Abuelo, a dark oak-aged rum from Panama.
This Hot Caramel Buttered Rum recipe combines smooth aged (añejo) rum with Van Gogh’s Dutch Caramel Vodka. It’s a fine drink to sip as you relax at the end of the day.
Or, have it at the end of dinner: It’s a cocktail and a dessert in one.
