Hot Buttered Rum

I've been making this hot buttered rum recipe for years and everyone loves it.  Since it's getting to be that time of year, here it is once again:

Hot Buttered Rum
1 pint vanilla (or caramel!) ice cream, softened
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 bottle dark rum
Boiling water

Beat the butter and ice cream together with an electric mixer  Mix in the sugar and spices .  Place in a container and put back into the freezer until firm.     When ready to serve, add 1 tablespoon of the batter to a cup with a shot of the rum.  Fill the cup with boiling water and stir to melt the batter.  

From here, you can add a dollop of whipped cream on top, some fresh nutmeg, and a cinnamon stick.  Or you can just drink it!
