Harvard-Yale Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Serves: 20
Total Calories: 76


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, slightly softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 heaping teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon Angostura bitters (in the condiments section)


To make the mix, place the softened (but not melted) butter in a medium bowl. Add the brown sugar gradually, and cream the butter and the sugar together, mixing well. Mix in the spices and bitters. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to several months, or use immediately.

To use the mix, stir 1–2 teaspoons of the butter/spice mix into 2 ounces of dark rum and 4 ounces boiling water for each serving.

Fun Fact: “The Game” is a name given to the football game between Harvard University and Yale University. The first meeting between the teams occurred on November 13, 1875, at Hamilton Field in New Haven, Connecticut. The venue alternates between Harvard Stadium and the Yale Bowl. For many students and alumni of Harvard and Yale, “The Game” is an important event. The schools are located only a few hours’ travel from one another; and, perhaps because they are among the nation’s most prestigious and oldest universities, the rivalry is intense. Beating the rival is often considered more important than the team’s season record. As of 2011, Yale leads the series 65–55–8.

The Harvard-Yale Regatta is another rivalry between the schools.
