Warm and delicious, this low carb, keto hot buttered rum mix is sure to impress. Just like the real thing but without all the carbs and sugar.
This Keto Hot Buttered Rum Mix is a must-try keto holiday recipe
This Keto Hot Buttered Rum recipe is a nod to my childhood. That may sound really strange given that it is an alcoholic beverage, but hear me out. Along with the hustle and bustle of family coming and going, feasting and opening presents, we had a couple of other Christmas traditions in our home. After the festivities had wound down for the evening, all the adults would gather around the table, play games and drink hot buttered rum. I was so excited when I was finally old enough to take part in the tradition. To this day, we still uphold this tradition.
If you have ever had a hot buttered rum, then you know that the batter contains A LOT of sugar. In an attempt to keep the holidays merry and bright without diving face first into a glass of sugar, I decided it was high time that I make my own low carb hot buttered rum batter. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we have. Do you have a family tradition that you have upheld for years and years? I would love to hear about it.

So it’s Friday night and you’re feeling alright. You’re ready to dance the night away with a cocktail in your hand. OR, if you are more like me, you want to have a cocktail at home with friends. But how do you know what to drink? What is the best alcohol for a low carb diet. Or what alcohol is lowest in carbs?
First, I'm going to break down the carbs in alcohol for you. Check out my Complete Guide to Carbs in Alcohol. If you're wondering… Can you have alcohol on a low carb diet? Is alcohol keto? You might be saying to yourself “But wait? I can’t! I’m low carb.” Well, you are NOT low carb. You're are a person following a low carb lifestyle. Do not be defined by your dietary decisions. Doing so will lead to a life of restriction and feeling restricted often causes us to stray from our intended path. Besides, who wants to pass up low carb gummy worms. Especially when they are boozy low carb gummy worms.

It is fabulous We're enjoying our first cup now!
I made this for our coffee and it’s wonderful. We are doing a keto diet/lifestyle change and getting my coffee to a pleasing taste has been difficult. This is perfection! I am confused though. My batch roughly made 54TBSP. When I program the recipe into my tracking app, it comes out to 2 net carbs per TBSP. Just curious how you are figuring .5 carbs per 2-3TBSP serving. I had to count 6 net carbs after using 3 TBSP based on the calculations. Am I doing something wrong? I’m new at this lifestyle, so that is totally possible. Thank you for you help and the yummy recipe!

Hi there. My total does not include the erythritol since it is zero net carbs. That is likely the discrepancy. So happy you enjoyed it.
Delicious! I’m not a fan of rum but just mixed this up and made a cup with Jim Beam.. Wonderful!!
Hot Buttered Whiskey sounds just as yummy!! We will be Using this to make both, to sit around the fire pit at the cabin over the holidays!! Thanks for the reminder (of using whiskey) :o). Cheers!!
I love the recipe and I am diabetic, so it's a treat! How many fat grams are in this? My husband has to watch his intake so I'm thinking he will have to drink the "regular" kind. Thank yiu!!!
