Love it, love it, love it ...knew I would. I did replace the sugar with Splenda and used a real cinnamon stick. Tangy and sweet, it goes down very nicely. I have been mixing lemonade and rum for ages but this was the first time I've had it hot. I think I'll be drinking it all next winter.
Very tasty and perfect on a cool day like today! I have never had hot lemonade, but I love lemons and this hit the spot!
Oh this was just perfect! DD made this for me cuz I have a bad cold. She wouldnt give me any candy tho! Didnt have any cinnamon candy so she gave me a cinnamon stick to stir it with. She also added some honey to it to help the cold and it was still not overly sweet. Great recipe NCMysteryShopper! Thank you so much for sharing!
Made this for my sick little DS. He wouldn't touch it, so I sipped on it - for the next three nights. Kept just fine in the fridge and warmed up in the microwave. I am going to make another batch. Great!
Oh my goodness I made this and I am telling you I am with merlot, it makes you feel all warm and cozy inside. I love lemon water but with the addition of rum and cinnamon stick this is a over 5 star drink. I will make this again and again and I am very happy as I am the only one here to drink this without our older son dipping into it :) Thank you cheryl for an awesome drink. I took some pics but will have to have dh help me download them, they don't do your drink justice but I really tried.. Thank you again for a wonderful wonderful drink. :) a very happy faith58
This is sooooo much better than cough syrup!! lol. I've had a sore throat..Made this before bed...slept wonderful!! I can't believe how good it is!! Thanks Cheryl!!!
When I was growing up, we always had hot lemonade in the evening - a few slices of lemon and some honey or sugar in a mug, macerate, and then fill with hot water. I NEVER thought of throwing in a slug of rum - inspired! I did not follow this recipe, so shan't rate it, but thanks so much for the inspiration!
Absolutely delicious! I used nice Jamaican rum and fresh lemons - the result was a sweet and potent cold repeller. I'll save this one, thanks sistah :)
It's a cold, cold evening and a perfect night to sip on this drink. Hubby said, "we must have this again"! It makes you feel all warm and cozy inside. Thanks for another treat, ncmysteryshopper.
Hi: I've been coping with a sore throat and cold and I have been looking for a Hot Lemonade receipe with Rum like my Dad used to give us when we had colds..this receipe fits the bill...finally got a good night's sleep after taking a glass...but, you don't need to be sick to enjoy this wonderful winter time drink.
