NWR: Hot Buttered Rum

Do people still drink hot buttered rums?

Everyone in my family loves hot buttered rums, so every year I make a big batch of mix to give out as little holiday presents.

This year we're going to a holiday party and everyone is supposed to bring something alcohol related for a gift exchange, so I was going to do my mix and a bottle of rum, but FI had never had one, and thinks it sounds gross.  So now I'm not sure if this is one of those weird family things I always think is normal, or if he just doesn't know what's up.

What do you guys think?

    I think hot buttered rum is kind of like eggnog in that you either love it or you hate it, and I think that if it's commonplace in your family, typically you'll love it.  If you grew up without it being commonplace, you're more likely to not be too impressed with it.  I once had a boyfriend who was so excited about the upcoming holidays because he couldn't wait to introduce me to the joys of hot buttered rum.  He was shocked when I said I didn't really care for it.

    I made it once, for Christmas.  It was the first thing I ever made in my slow cooker.  No one really drank it.  I'd never seen anyone drinking it before.  It just looked fun to try.  I can't remember if I liked it or not.

    I've never seen it made in a slow cooker before.  We always have a frozen mix and throw it in a mug with hot water and rum.
    When I was little my dad used to make them for me without the rum, because literally every adult in our family was drinking them and I wanted to be like the grown ups.

    Hot buttered rum is one of my favorite things about the holidays! It's like taking everything you're only supposed to have 'in moderation', and mixing it in a mug. 

    Yum.
