Here’s a yummy warming sipper from

Hot Buttered Vanilla Rum

  • 1 1/2  cups  water
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  vanilla bean
  • 1  (2-inch) piece lemon rind
  • 1  cup  dark rum
  • 1  tablespoon  butter

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine sieve over a bowl, reserving liquid; discard solids. Return water mixture to pan. Add rum and butter to pan; bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Serve immediately.
