Hot Buttered Rum Batter (With and Without Alcohol)

“Create your holiday memories with this hot drink on the holidays. While putting up your cherished Holiday decorations, put a kettle of hot water on, a shot or two of rum and a spoon or two of batter in the mugs. Add a Holiday garnish of your choice. Sip while enjoying the holiday spirit. I received this recipe from my mother in law many years ago. It was my first taste of Hot Buttered Rum and quickly became a favorite of mine. Do Not Use Margarine. Apparently after posting this recipe there has been some debate that this recipe may not be alcohol free after all. Please use with caution where children and medications are concerned. Please check your ingredient list on the extract or flavoring before use.”
