Apple Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

Apple Hot Buttered Rum

We’ve fully immersed ourselves into apple season, and even though it’s coming to an end you’re going to be making our hot apple cider buttered rum recipe all winter. 

It’s starting to get chilly in Texas, and that means we’re starting to shift from cold to hot cocktails.  There’s no better hot cocktail recipe than our sugar-free hot apple cider butter rum cocktail, it’s like a warm sweater in a glass for your insides. 

Our hot apple cocktail is easy to make, tasty, and most importantly to us, it’s sugar-free using our favorite natural sweetener Purecane.  

If you’ve been following our dessert recipes this year you’ve noticed our love of Purecane as a sugar replacement, and we’ve even shed pounds this year because of doing it.  

Purecane is also a major hero for us because it’s gluten-free, and zero calorie.

We use Purecane in both the apple compote and the hot buttered rum portion of this recipe.

Can you warm up rum?

Adding the boiled water to the rum cocktail won’t get rid of the alcohol as you’re not fully cooking the rum.  

It’s also recommended by rum specialists to drink rum warmed up because it brings out the natural flavoring of rum which is perfect for this cocktail.

Hot Buttered Rum

A hot buttered rum has been around since colonial days!

If you prefer a traditional hot buttered rum, just make the recipe and skip the portion where you make an apple mash.

A hot buttered rum is great on it’s own, but we enjoy the cinnamon apple addition that this cocktail provides.
