Hot Buttered Rum

- a shot of dark rum (high quality is recommended)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1/2 tablespoon of butter (unsalted)
- hot water
- optional ground nutmeg

Boil the water, and while you're waiting on that combine the other ingredients in a mug. 

Once the water is boiling pour into the mug.  Stir until the butter dissolves.

Add the nutmeg if you'd like, and enjoy.  This is a great drink for a cold night.  Definitely warms me up!  A great night cap, but you definitely want to use a great tasting rum, otherwise this wont taste all that great.  

Happy Thirsty Thursday, chris!
