This is a recipe my family uses from time to time when in dire need of comfort from a rotten cold. Helps you sleep, the rum settles your aches and pains, and the lemon and spices help open up breathing passages.
- In a small pot over medium heat place all ingredients except rum. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
- In a large mug pour about 1-2 fingers of dark rum. Pour contents of small pot through a strainer into the mug.
- Sip while hot.
- Go straight to bed.
