Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum

Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum cocktail with dark rum, maraschino, lemon juice, sugar, black tea, and butter

The Volcano House Hot Buttered Rum is a 50’s classic, hailing from Hawaii’s Volcano House Hotel. It’s a beautiful upgrade to a standard Hot Buttered Rum, with the unusual addition of maraschino providing just a touch of funk, and a tea base offering a plethora of interesting spices and tannins. It’s great with any black tea, but we especially love it with a bergamot-forward blend like Earl Grey.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
