This ultra-modern take on hot buttered rum was designed for Fab by award-winning bartender Gn Chan, whose affinity for rum is so strong that he’s competing in this year’s Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition with a rum-based cocktail of his own invention.
Gn’s Hot Buttered Coffee cocktail presents you with the ideal way to warm up by the fireplace—or turbo-start a festive morning.
The combination of coffee and butter will be familiar to anyone who follows the Bulletproof coffee movement, and Gn’s genius addition of rum and sweet sherry makes for a sweet yet balanced treat.
Here’s how to make your first batch.
Hot Buttered Rum
45 ml rum
10 ml sweet sherry
200 ml hot coffee
1 cm cube of sweet butter
Makes 1, but is easily multiplied.
- Combine rum and sherry in your favorite mug.
- Add hot coffee.
- Add your little knob of butter and stir, just a bit—you want to have the pat melt slowly as you drink.
