While mulled wine and toddy have European roots, hot buttered rum is a distinctly American libation. Its origins trace back to the 1650s when Jamaica started importing molasses to Colonial America and New England witnessed the establishment of distilleries. Unable to resist the allure of distilled rum, colonists began incorporating it into their hot drinks like eggnog and toddy, giving rise to the delightful creation of hot buttered rum.
