Jack Frost + rhum

WordPress has finally stopped being a naughty boy, and my blog homepage is now a well-functioning subtle picture of frosty loveliness. I am ever grateful for my darling husband’s formal training and expertise in graphic design; he not only quickly and calmly addresses many a technical meltdown, but manages to make it snow at the top of my blog. Thank you, love…

Jack Frost is making himself known in these parts and elsewhere  lately; I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the fruit trees aren’t broken by this week’s freeze. To avoid being broken by these freezing elements, I recommend that you make and drink the following hot concoction. Don’t go using rum in this recipe; it had better be rhum. As in Rhum Barbancourt from Haiti, either 5-star Réserve Spéciale or Réserve du Domaine (aged 8 years and 15 years respectively).

Rhum Barbancourt
sugar or honey
1 lemon

One part very hot water. Two parts rhum. Juice of one lemon. Honey or sugar to taste (I use a bit of both). If it’s too rhummy for you, do one part rhum. Totally flexible and always great in the evening.

Please don’t drink and drive. Stay happy and keep warm!

    ooooooooooh, that sounds GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!! I’m so mad because Mom had given me 2 bottles of reserve speciale when I was packing my shipment and I FORGOT THEM on the kitchen counter. That is a crime against humanity.
