Rum Hot Toddy


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.


Rum Hot Toddy (from here)


4 to 6 ounces hot water, varies on cup size
1 ounce or 2 tablespoons spice rum (recommended: Captain Morgan)
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 lemon
Cinnamon sugar, to taste


Combine the hot water and rum in a mug. Stir in the honey and squeeze out the juice from the lemon wedge. Finish with a dash on cinnamon sugar and serve warm.
