Who doesn't love Chocolate and Raspberries?
I had a weekend at the cabin with friends and I this was my contribution. A simple blend of Sam Smith's Chocolate Stout and Lindeman's Framboise. And boy was this a hit! Should have brought a few more bottles.
It's cold outside so I wanted to do something a little different than what we've been doing. This month, is a Hot Drink Month!

  • 1 1/2 ounces Captain Morgan Private Reserve rum
  • 3/4 ounce orange liqueur (Grand Marnier)
  • 1/4 ounce lime juice
  • Hot water to fill
  • Lime wedge for garnish
Notes about ingredients: Spiced rum is the best option here (in my opinion) it holds up to and compliments the orange liqueur, and gives that aroma that just makes a hot drink so satisfying. Capt - Private Stock is smooth. Lots of vanilla and baking spice notes, perfect for heating and enjoying. 

Pour the liquors and lime juice into a mug - clear is best for the full effect. Top with hot water, garnish with lime. 

As one of the easiest drinks we've made to date I still argue, simple is good, especially if you aren't feeling great. Toddies are traditional cold remedies, you know ;) 

I am a connoisseur of Hot Toddies. They are one of my favorite winter pleasures, and in Alaska we need all the winter pleasures we can get. One sip of this, and I have a new favorite Toddy. I loved the sweetness from the orange liqueur and felt that it complimented the rum, better even than honey could. This isn't just a "will make again" - I'm having another as I type. 

Special Note: Depending on how strong you like your drinks, adjust the amount of hot water. I like a bit more alcohol flavor. But then, I like my coffee and tea extra strong too, so maybe it's not just the booze? (it's probably just the booze)

(I had to make it again in a clear mug, because it's much prettier)

5 Stars on My Scale.

The Hot toddy has a rich and varied history, and is heavily ingrained in our winter traditions. Toddies are traditionally a liquor base, a sweetener, spice, and lemon. Whisky, brandy and rum are the most common liquors used. When the Toddy made it to the States from Scotland where whisky was the traditional base, we changed it up a bit using brandy that was made locally, or sometimes we used rum that was being imported from the Caribbean.

In Scotland Toddies were advertised as a cold cure, the association of Toddies and head colds is still strong today. While we now know that drinking alcohol while sick won’t make you better, the warm drink and spices DO help clear up congestion, and honey, the most often used sweetener, coats and helps sooth your throat.

So don’t let anyone tell you there’s a “right way” to make the drink, you make it the way YOU like it! Experiment, have fun!

Me, I just like a hot drink on a cold day, and sometimes hot tea just won’t do the trick!
