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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients (except the tea and butter) to a heatproof glass. Top with the tea, stir, and float the pat of butter on top. Garnish with a wide strip of lemon peel, studded with cloves.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
