brown sugar

• 4 oz. boiling water

• 2 oz. rum

• 2-3 tbsp. hot buttered rum batter

• Whipped cream (add a small bit of rum for a rum flavored one)

• Nutmeg and/or cinnamon stick for garnish


To make the batter:

Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Blend in brown sugar and confectioners sugar. Remove from heat, and whisk in the ice cream, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour mixture into container(s), seal, and freeze.

To serve:

Rim the edge of the mug or glass with the cut orange and dip the rim in the combination of white and brown sugars (optional). Squeeze the juice from a quarter of the orange into the mug. Fill the mug with the hot water and then add the rum and the batter. (Note: You may also use coffee or cider instead of water and rum, depending on your liking.) Stir and top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
