Default Looking for a hot Rum Drink Recipe

Hey all, believe it or not it is actually been getting a little chilly up here in Vancouver lately. The rum is helping out, but now I've decided to put some of my rum towards another good use and drink it warm to help take the chill out of the air.

Soooo...I'm looking for a drink recipe that includes rum (duh!), apple cider, cinnamon, cloves, etc. that is simple enough to be made on the kitchen stove, as well as portable enough to be cooked up on the Coleman stove while ice fishing.

All suggestions appreciated.

Cheers,

Duff

You're off to a good start with cider, cinnamon and cloves. I like to heat the non-alcoholic ingredients and then take it off the stove and add the rum so I don't loose all the alcohol.

Over a coleman stove, be careful to pour the rum into a glass and then add the rum to the hot pot. Pouring rum from a bottle over a lit stove is very dangerous. Don't do it. It can easily become a flame thrower.

Salient point Ed, but y'know, at that point after being out on the lake for a few hours, we may actually appreciate the occasional flame thrower!

I know it's hard to believe but I've seen a couple of serious burns when a half full bottle of rum was poured onto a flaming dessert. Sure takes the fun out of a night out.

You can make a quick infusion of your cider by adding the spices to the container. I use allspice, cloves, cinnamon, and a little nutmeg. After a day or two, the cider will be nicely spice-infused. All you have to do is pour out what you want, heat it, put it in the mug, and add the rum. This is a nice trick for trips because it limits the amount of stuff you have to carry.

I'm a little late to the game with this one but I've made a Rum Toddy before using rum in place of whiskey. The first time I made one I almost knocked myself in the floor with the strength of it - I didn't realize how much more potent alcohol is when served in a hot beverage!

My basic toddy has about 6-8 oz of water with an oz of rum, a generous squeeze of lemon and a heavy tablespoon of sugar, then I drop the lemon in the glass and add a cinnamon stick. I'm sure a variation with cider or cider and water would work as well and eliminate the need for the sugar.

That sounds very good! I'll have to pick up some lemons (along with the usual limes) when I go to the store tomorrow.

Here's a video of a hot rum punch that I make for parties and I've yet to have any complaints.

Lemon is a good addition to a hot punch, sauteing the pineapple also adds a nice caramel flavor. If you can make this recipe a day in advance it is even better.

An old thread, but I just want to say thanks for this post. I used it as my template. I settled on 2 packed teaspoons of brown sugar, the juice from 1/4 of a lemon, 1.5oz of Havana Club Anejo Especial, less than 1/4 of a cinnamon stick, and hot water to top off a 225ml mug. I’m a little generous with the sugar, otherwise the lemon makes it too sour, and I take the cinnamon stick out as soon as the Hot Toddy is cool enough to sip.
