Yum to the Rum.

Seems like you always need to stock up on booze over the holidays - well at least I do. Found a great mail-in rebate for $8 when you purchased 2 - 750ml spirits! Trekked it to the liquor store last night and both bottles I wanted happened to be on sale. Here's the breakdown:

Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka $13.95
Captain Morgan's Spiced Run $17.95
-$8 mail-in rebate=
$11.95 each!!!

Now I've got plenty of booze for my jello shots (red and green of course!) and my hot buttered rum, which is my new addiction.

as follows:
1 lb. salted butter - room temperature
1 lb. light brown sugar
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 qt. vanilla ice cream - softened
2 T. vanilla
2. T. cinnamon
1 T. nutmeg

You basically mix all of this stuff together with a hand mixer until smooth. It can be stored in the fridge or freezer.

How to make the drink:

1 shot of rum
2 T. of hot buttered rum mix
8-10 oz. of hot water

Stir and enjoy...and enjoy....and enjoy.
