This is a great holiday recipe for get togethers. I found that it is even better if you substitute hot cider for the water. Sprinkle with a little nutmeg and insert a cinnamin stick.

This tastes really good but make sure the ice cream and butter are softened just short of melting, otherwise the ice cream will cool the butter and make it lumpy.

I made this recipe and it is great. I used heavy cream rather than ice cream and it came out really good.

I love this! I make a batch at the beginning of winter and keep it ready in the fridge for those cold nights. I have friends that don't drink so they have theirs minus the rum and still say how good it is!

This was ok. I definitely needed more mix per cup than called for to get a good flavor. My guests likes it, so that was good! But personally, was not crazy about this.

I am sipping this right now. I quartered the recipe just to try it the first time, and added 1 tsp cinnamon to the mix. I think it needs even more, plus a nutmeg sprinkle on top of the finished drink. And half the water-to-mix ratio (way too weak with the full cup of water). Added later: Ok, this is REALLY good with hot coffee instead of water. NOW i like it!

Was the hit of my Christmas party. Although I was unable to enjoy it b/c I was too busy hosting - I did taste it and by the end of the party it was completely gone!!! I put in more rum than called for though.

It's good, but lacks kick/spice/punch. I think I will add cider or spices next time.
