Warm Rum Cocktail for a cold winter night
Some days ago I saw Nandita post a warm toddy like drink at TOIT and my memories were taken back to childhood when dad would make a similar drink during Delhi winter when it would be too cold for whiskey on the rocks or with chilled soda. On a cold winter evening he would make this and then many years later when I went back home in Delhi winters, he made this for me and I have to say it is so soothing. That time I didn't bother to check with him on what and how much he put but Nandita's instagram picture suddenly had me yearning for my dad's drink. So I called him and got this recipe. Four days and its been a regular at home, also passed to atleast three more friends one of whom is scolding me on why I didn't tell her this before.
So sharing it with everyone, winter is just round the corner. Make this on a cold evening and curl up in bed with a book.
- Warm the apple juice in microwave for 1 minute.
- Mix all the ingredients together, stir and serve warm
Notes : My dad is a true Punjabi, he doesn't do small drinks and I am his daughter ;) but feel free to reduce the rum in it. 30 ml or small peg per person works as well
Also dark rum = old monk for me, nothing can ever replace that but I recently also tried Amrut dark rum which is very good. so take your pick
