Hot buttered rum with cannabutter: recipe and ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted cannabutter at room temperature (or a mixture of cannabutter and regular butter to reduce potency)
  • 1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces dark rum
  • 3/4 cup of near-boiling water

How to make hot buttered rum with cannabutter

  1. Beat cannabutter, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg with an electric mixer on medium speed for one minute.
  2.  Combine 2 tablespoons spiced cannabutter with 1.5 ounces (one shot) of dark rum in each of 4 coffee mugs.
  3. Pour 3/4 cup boiling water in each mug and stir. Enjoy!

Not that this hot buttered rum recipe can also be made with white rum if you don’t have dark.  Adding a few drops of molasses can substitute somewhat for the missing dark rum taste, but it’s better to use dark rum for this recipe if you can.
