My husband, Dave, teases me about being a Michigan girl and tells me I’m not supposed to get cold in the winter. I reply that it’s not that we don’t get cold, we just know how to warm up!

I first had Hot Buttered Rum after the end-of-year regatta at the Indianapolis Sailing Club, where I’d crewed on a friend’s boat. Instantly, it was my favorite winter warm-up, reserved for special times with friends.

When Dave and I were invited to try ice boating close to twenty years ago, I brought along the makings for Hot Buttered Rum. It was a huge hit, and every time the lake froze solidly and smoothly enough, we’d get a call inviting us to join in – “oh, and can you bring the Hot Buttered Rum?”

Got a late start heading south and feeling it as you come down the ICW? Hot Buttered Rum is a great end-of-day reward for miles gained.

This winter, we’re cruising Florida. While we may not get any sub-freezing days, it’s still the perfect warm-up drink after a chilly day on the water!
