Rum Hot Toddy

rumhottoddy

This is the perfect drink to get you through #snowmaggedon, #snowmg, #snowpocalpyse or whatever you’re calling it these days.

I’m glad that I didn’t pour the entire bottle of rum into the bananas foster that I made for New Years. I realized that I had a little extra on my hands, so I decided to make Hot Toddies afternoon.

The honey pitches in some sweetness and the lemon juice gives it that tangy, citrus appeal. I also had some cinnamon sugar leftover from when I made brioche toast earlier, so I sprinkled it on top as a final touch.

I can’t wait to enjoy a few more of these during my weather-imposed hibernation.
