Happy Hot Buttered Rum Day!

There’s nothing quite like an official day dedicated to drinking. It removes any guilt from an early afternoon (or late morning) cocktail on the weekend. And we’ve got a great one on Saturday with Hot Buttered Rum Day! 

Most of the country has experienced exceptional cold this year, and we’re in the dead of winter now. So a mug full of Hot Buttered Rum is the perfect treat for a chilly Saturday. If you’ve never had one, what better time to give it a try? It’s a company favorite that the boss often whips up on snowy afternoons. They’re absolutely delectable. Trust me.
