Ice cream makes this Hot Buttered Rum from Zig Zag Café bartender Kasy Fitch ultra-rich and creamy. And the nearly 20-year-old recipe still garners rave reviews from customers, including Fitch’s own mother.

4 oz. boiling water
3 Tbsp. hot buttered rum batter (see below)
Tools: barspoon
Glass: warm mug

Add batter and rum to the bottom of a warm mug. Slowly fill with hot water, stirring to thoroughly incorporate all ingredients. Garnish.
