BACARDI is sharing some delicious recipes for the BACARDÍ Rum Toddy to keep warm on these chilly, winter days. For those who can’t get enough of warm winter drinks, here is their recipe for Hot Buttered Rum Day, to help beat the winter blues.
As winter rears its frosty head, we could all use a good thawing out with a toasty winter warmer right about now, so I thought you might be interested in a couple of BACARDÍ’s own steamy libations, especially with Hot Toddy Day on January 11th and Hot Buttered Rum Day coming up on the 17th.
While the origin of the hot toddy is still up for debate, we do know that rum made its first hot toddy debut in the U.S. during the 18th century, where the beverage maintained its longstanding reputation as a natural remedy for the common cold. An idyllic complement to aged rum’s oaky, vanilla and honey flavors, hot toddies inspired the creation of hot buttered rum with just a few tweaks to the original recipe to create a richer, more indulgent flavor profile!
BACARDÍ Rum Toddy
Method: Pour hot water into a tempered glass mug. Squeeze the lemon wedge into the water, add honey, and stir until the honey is dissolved. Add BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro and stir gently. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon slice.
BACARDÍ Hot Buttered Rum
Method: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan on the stovetop over medium heat. Stir continuously until the sugar dissolves. After the sugar dissolves, simmer for 5-10 minutes to infuse all flavors. Pour mixture into a serving vessel and serve in individual glass mugs. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon wheel.
It takes four years maturing in a barrel under the Caribbean sun to create the unique taste of BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro Rum. It’s time well spent. Just like those special moments shared with friends enjoying Añejo Cuatro rum.
Made with aged rum and with a hint of smokiness from charred American oak, BACARDÍ Spiced rum is blended with natural flavors and a secret blend of spices for a bold, yet smooth taste. BACARDÍ Spiced’s liquid has both light and deep notes, making it perfect for mixing.
