However, I made these at work last year before Christmas break; there was a lot of nose-squinching when people saw butter, rum, sugar, and cinnamon sticks arrayed on the countertop. So maybe I'm alone on this one.

Hot Buttered Rum
Makes 1 serving
The grown-up equivalent of hot cocoa - perfect when you're chilled to the bone. Add a pinch of ground cloves, cinnamon, and/or nutmeg if you like.
1 cup water
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) rum
- Bring 1 cup of water to a boil.
- Place the remaining ingredients in a mug and pour boiling water over them. Stir and serve.
