    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    I have been making this Rum Toddy for many years. This is good on cold days, a cold or a sore throat. I am not suggesting it is a cure, but it is tasty.

      I've tried several hot toddy recipes over the past two decades (yes, I am over 38). Had an uncomfortable chest cold with aggravating 'cough' which Robitussin TM seemed to barely manage.

      Was wallowing in self-pity watching some pointless program when I had an inspiration. "What inspiration?" you may ask...

      I googled "Hot Rum Toddy" as I was in Cuba earlier this year and was not in mood for a 'Cuba Libre'. Found Uncle Bill's Hot rum toddy concoction. Although I had no nutmeg, I did have the fresh lemon, great Canadian organic honey, of course the essential CUBAN dark rum, and whatever else his recipe prescribed.

      One drink later, feeling fine and gotta' admit, I lessened the honey amount (too sweet for me, used teasppons) and on a scale of 1-5, this is easily a 4.5

      Why so high? If it wasn't good I wouldn't have taken the time to post this comment!

      I have tried several hot rum recipes, and didn't like any of them. I thought at first I wouldn't like this one, but after playing around with the honey and lemon, it turned out really good! thanks for the recipe.
