Rum Toddy Redux
The batter is a do ahead task and can easily sit in the fridge from Thanksgiving to Christmas without a problem. The ingredients include plenty of aromatic and delicious spices like ginger, cinnamon and cloves. It has a butter base and is rich in brown sugar and honey, too.
Here's how it works: After mixing up a batch of batter, you spoon it into boiling water, add rum (or another libation) and finish it off with a little whipped cream and fresh ground nutmeg (if you like). Nothing -- I mean noting -- not a hot bath, not a back rub and not an unexpectedly clean kitchen, has more appeal than 15 quiet, indulgent minutes with this delicious drink.
Hey, I'm not even much of an alcohol drinker, and I look forward to making this mix -- and the resulting steaming cups of rum toddy -- every, single year. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.
I included the actual recipe in a previous post. You can find it here.
