A delicious hot beverage that is perfect in cold weather and for holiday entertaining. Also a wonderful drink if you are feeling a bit under the weather as well! Tastes especially good with ginger-bread cookies! Be sure to spike it with high-quality dark rum. This version can also be chilled. Recipe adapted from Suzanne Lombardi from Star Cookies.
- In a medium saucepan combine water, lemon juice and sugar and simmer over low heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves. Stir in the rum.
- Pour into warm mugs, garnish with lemon slices & candy swizzle sticks.
