Winter-Ish Hot Buttered Rum…To Drink Before Those Resolutions

What a way to end the year though.

I feel like I’m not being a bad influence here, guys…because technically January is filled with resolutions, cleanses, & health, so why not be naughty for New Year’s Eve?


Hey at least this buttered rum has grass-fed butter in it…so it’s kind of like Bullet Proof coffee— but Bullet Proof Rum.

( …totally justifying why I deserve buttered rum for tomorrow’s celebration here ).

Ultimately, this is a one & done type of drink. I mean you don’t need 3. Have one, enjoy it, move on to the bubbly. You get it.

Mmkkay. So let’s talk about easy ingredients shall we?


2/3 cup raw coconut sugar
1 stick grass-fed butter ( I am obsessed with unsalted Kerry Gold ), room temp
1/4 cup raw, local honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Pinch Himalayan salt
3/4 cup spiced rum ( I used Captain Morgan, TBT to 11th grade )
2 cups boiling water
4 sticks cinnamon, for garnish

+ Directions: in a bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, & salt. Refrigerate until almost firm. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into 12 small mugs. Pour about 3 ounces of rum into each mug ( filling about halfway ). Top with boiling water, stir well, & serve immediately.

Here’s more of an explanation:

I feel like a champagne cocktail on New Year’s Eve is JUST as predictable as glitter or a bandeau dress on NYE? THOUGHTS?

Please, do eigh in.

Anyway back to the hot buttered rum.

Buttered rum is just fun & kind of reminds me of Harry Potter’s butter beer. Plusssss who doesn’t want to come out of 2015 with a bang? Let’s butter it up, & then worry about our green juice January 1st.

    1. Bulletproof coffee is soo good for you! Let me know what you think when you try this recipe! Happy New Year to you too Alexis

  1. Looks so good!! I’m making a hot apple cider with rum tonight for my friends and I. I agree with you about the glitter, bandeau dresses and typical NYE things in general. I may even rock pants tonight to rebel! PS. I am totally with you with this no drinking in January (previous post). After the holidays, I definitely need to clean it all up! I hope you have a great new year’s eve and I can’t wait to see what is in store for 2016!

    1. Hi Annie, yes seriously can we all scratch the sparkles on NYE?? So boring. I’m excited you’re doing dry January too! Let me know how you feel at the end of the month. Happy 2016!!

  2. Love it Lauryn! Literally after everyone of your posts I have to make a quick trip to the grocery store. Quick question- When you are making your posts do you typically film them yourself by using a tripod? They always look so perfect!

    Anyways, keep up the good work babe!
    Happy New Year

    1. Hi Brianna, it depends. I either film them myself or work with Chris Tran, he’s a seriously rad videographer. Here is his website:
