Hot Buttered Rum
We hit the neighbor's bush
Made a driveway beacon (no missing the turn now)
and some random spots on the lawn...
But it was COLD out so we didn't get as much done as we wanted, we weenied out one at a time, until I was standing in the yard with four spray bottles of colored water which is, face it is kind of weird.
That was OK though I had a special treat on the stove for me and some hot chocolate for my under 21 teammates. Hot buttered rum was going for me, one of those drinks that soothes you from the inside and just makes the evening warm.
Makes two servings
1/2 cup apple Cidar
2 TBS brown sugar
2 TBS unsalted butter
3-4 whole cloves
1/8 tsp (isn't that a big pinch) of cinnamon or 1/2 a cinnamon stick
small pinch of salt
1/2 cup dark rum
Heat all of the ingredients in a small saucepan until it starts to simmer then serve.
