Hot Buttered Rum

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Bottle dark rum
Boiling water or apple cider

Cream together butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt and vanilla. Roll out into a cylinder (pictured above), wrap in parchment paper, and freeze until firm. Give wrapped mixture as a gift, or pull out whenever you want a cup.

When ready, slice off about 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture into a small mug. Pour 2-3 ounces of rum into each mug and top with boiling water or apple cider. Serve immediately.
