When it comes to holidays, Jan. 17 celebrates an important birthday, an important service and a delicious beverage! Not only is it Ben Franklin Day and Customer Service Day, today is also National Hot Buttered Rum Day!
While the origins of this annual holiday are unknown, folks have been enjoying this American drink for centuries. In fact, hot-buttered rum dates back to the colonial period. Hot buttered rum is a warm drink comprised of butter, spices and of course, rum. What could be better on a blistery winter's day than sipping on a delicious beverage guaranteed to warm you up?
In honor of National Hot Buttered Rum Day, why not celebrate with one or two tried-and-true or brand new hot buttered rum recipes?
