"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!
THANKS UNCLE BILL, you ROCK!!!
(Qiviuq leaves post to make round #2...)"
"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."
"This was excellent!! I didn't have rum on hand, so I substituted with crown royal maple whiskey.. and it was delicious!!! My hubby had to crawl to bed after this one and didn't seem to notice his flu anymore..hahaha :)"
"Better than any other hot toddy recipe I've tried. Most taste bitter and just have me add a tea bag. This one is delicious and I feel like it's helping my congestion already."
"It may not be a cure, but it can surely make you feel better about the whole thing!"
"Tasty! I modified some...I used 2 oz dark rum, 3 tablespoons wildflower honey, 2 tbl bottled lemon juice (no rind; didn't have any). The freshly grated nutmeg gives it a nice touchy. Still sipping on it so I don't know how it's gonna help my cold symptoms but it sure is tasty!"
