Hot Earth Balanced Rum

Am I really going to blog every weekday this month?   I don't know, but here goes...

Hey, it had to happen: it was getting cold out, and my friend Adrea had brought some rum to my birthday party that was assuredly going to go bad if I didn't do something with it.  I always thought hot buttered rum was a little weird, and I think using earth balance doesn't exactly help.  Still, it's a very cozy, comforting sort of drink, totally inoffensive, though I think I'd rather just have an interesting dark ale.

More rum recipes, btw, are on their way.  :)
