Very tasty. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice so I substituted 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ground ginger and 1/16 tsp each nutmeg and ground cloves. I omitted ground orange peel. I used Captain Morgan's spiced rum in mine---very yummy. Also, the kids enjoyed the mix made with hot water only.

Not good....bland and boring. I will stick to the ice cream version....

Made a plastic container of this. Keep it in my fridge for instant hot buttered rums. SO GOOD! Perfect for Minnesota evenings. Thanks! Time to replenish.

Very, Very good. Prefer this over the overly heavy ice cream types. Doubled the spices and orange peel, with great success too.

Love the orange peel in this recipe. I added a heaping tablespoon of vanilla ice cream and it is now perfection in a cup. Cheers!

This was wonderful. I didn't expect much without the ice cream, but what an after dinner treat it was. I didn't have any oranges, so I left out the orange peel. Very easy and worth it. I used vanilla rum to add the extra kick.

I just made this and it's lovely. I didn't add the orange peel, so I think I will definitely do that next time. I also didn't have any rum, but it's pretty delicious by itself. :]
