This warm rum cocktail is something my dad used to make on cold winter evenings in Delhi. I got the recipe from him and it remains one of my cherished ones!
Warm Rum cocktail to warm you up on a cold winter night. And what is not to love about rum cocktails when you are shivering in the cold!
Some days ago I saw Nandita post a warm toddy like drink at TOIT. My memories were taken back to childhood when dad would make a similar drink during cold months of winter, when it would be too cold for whiskey on the rocks or having any alchoholic drink with chilled soda. On a cold winter evening he would make this to feel all warmed up. 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 this has been a regular at home. I passed on the recipe to a tleast three more friends, one of whom is scolding me on why I didn’t tell her this before.
While there are many other ways one can warm up on winter nights, (have haldi milk or hot chocolate), this is one way to feel all fuzzy and warmed up especially on a weekend night, when you have nothing pressing to do the next day morning!
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!
