Having grown up in Vermont, warm and comforting drinks were a staple during the Winter months, and especially at the holidays.  Nothing warmed you up better after playing or working out in the cold and snow than a steamy hot drink.  Especially if it was topped with a delicious dollop of creamy whipped cream.  I remember my Mom whipping up many mugfuls of homemade hot cocoa, Russian tea, and hot mocha to thaw us out on those cold winter days. 

Would you like to know my new favorite warm-you-up drink?  Honey Hot Buttered Rum, made extra easy and extra special for the holidays with Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules.  It's a mugful of warm rum-and-honey comfort!

In case you're not familiar with the product, Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules is a blend of sugar and honey that makes it deliciously easy to sweeten up your holiday drinks ... and to add honey flavor to all kinds of dishes.

And the Honey Granules work perfectly for whipping up this Honey Hot Buttered Rum.  Simply measure out some Honey Granules and combine them with softened butter, ground ginger, and a touch of ground cinnamon to form a butter batter that will serve as the base of the drink. 

Okay, I just have to say ... do you know what I especially love about using Honey Granules?  There's no sticky mess in my measuring utensils!  Or in my mixing bowls.  Or on my spoons or spatulas.  Which also means none of that honey deliciousness gets left behind ... every last tasty honey bit makes it right into the dish.  Love that.

Now once the Honey Hot Buttered Rum batter is ready, it's time to whip up your mugful of comfort.  Drop a couple tablespoons of the batter into each mug, and add some dark spiced rum ...

Top the mug off with boiling water ... and give it all a good stir until the butter batter melts and completely dissolves, creating your delicious mugful of Honey Hot Buttered Rum.  To finish it off, top with a dollop of whipped cream.

Now for an extra-special touch, top with homemade honey whipped cream ... yes, honey  whipped cream.  Simply sweeten whipping cream with Honey Granules, and whip it up! ~ you've got honey goodness for topping your Honey Hot Buttered Rum, thanks to Tate+Lyle® Honey Granules.  Honey Granules can also be stirred into tea or cocktails, sprinkled over your cereal or other favorite foods, or measured like sugar to include in baked goods.  Substitute Honey Granules for some, or all, of the granulated sugar called for in a recipe, adding a fabulous touch of honey flavor while avoiding the sticky mess of liquid honey.

So now that the colder weather is here, enjoy an extra special mugful of warm rum-and-honey comfort, just perfect for thawing you out and warming you up during the holidays!  And I think I'll make a mug or two for Mom over Christmas to pay her back for all those comforting mugfuls of warm-you-up drinks she made for me when I was a kid.
