Hot Toddy
Rum Drink Recipe

A roaring fire and drifting snow make great accompaniments for this classic warming brew. If neither of those is available, a pair of warm
socks—or a handful of good friends—will work just fine.

2 ounces rum
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup boiling water
3 whole cloves
1 slice lemon
~ ground nutmeg

1. Pour the rum, honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon into a heat-resistant mug.

2. Pour in the boiling water and stir well.

3. Fasten the cloves to the peel of the lemon slice and drop it in. (This prevents you from accidentally swallowing the spices!)

4. Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve.
