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.

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
