This warm mixture is a distinctive twist on the classic hot buttered rum.

  • 1/4 cup
    fresh mint leaves, plus 10 for garnish

  • 10 dashes
  • 12 ounces
    dark rum, (1 1/2 cups)

  1. Using a muddler or large wooden spoon, mash sugar and herbs together in a large saucepan until the herbs are bruised and fragrant.
  2. Add water and bitters; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Stir in rum and cook for 1 minute. Add butter and cook, stirring, until it melts.
