One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the serving of my Mom’s Hot Buttered Rum. It’s sooo good! And, yes, my Mom is Connie.
This cocktail is a crowd pleaser and so easy to make! And, its great for adults and kiddies (just omit the Rum or Brandy for them and serve a mocktail). This drink is so great, we recommend that you drink it all winter to help keep you warm. Since, this is a Wisconsin Original, most people substitute Brandy for the Rum (including your’s truly).
BATTER: Make before hand
1 lb. Powdered Sugar
1 lb. Brown Sugar

Soften butter and ice cream. Combine butter and sugar, then stir in the ice cream. Then freeze.
In a footed coffee mug, combine:
1 oz. Brandy or Gold or Dark Rum
1 scoop of batter
Fill with hot water or coffee
Stir well and top with Nutmeg (if you want to be fancy, add a cinnamon stick)
