We’ve been drinking a lot of hot drinks to keep us warm recently, we bought a load of mulled wine from the supermarket (yes we cheated) and when that was gone we moved on Pimm’s Winter which you drink with hot apple juice. During snow week when we couldn’t go to work, we searched the shops of Southsea for a bottle of it and couldn’t find any.
My housemate came back with a bottle of the delicious vanillery Lamb’s Spiced Rum which isn’t the cheapest but it tasted really nice with hot apple, and we put half a cinnamon stick in with the apple juice. Don’t put the alcohol in the pan, you’ll burn it off!
There’s a couple of other suggestions for spirits you should definitely try too: As a replacement for Lamb’s Spiced Rum, try Sailor Jerry Rum or for a more almond/caramel taste, why not use amaretto, like Disaranno.
