Two cookbooks in One! My Year in Meals invites readers into Rachael Ray’s own kitchen as she shares recipes from her food diary and personal photos, revealing what she might cook for her friends and family throughout the year. When you flip the book over you’ll find My Year in Cocktails, a collection of over 100 cocktail recipes from Rachael’s husband, John Cusimano. The following is a recipe for a ‘Warm Skater’s Toddy’ that is the perfect finish to a cold winter evening.
Warm Skater’s Toddy
- 1/2 c heavy cream
- 1/4 tsp maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp
- 1 1/2 ounces dark rum
- 3 ounces boiling water
- Pinch of nutmeg, plus more for garnish
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pinch of allspice
- 1/4 tsp of brown sugar
Whip the cream in a cold bowl until stiff peaks form. Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a heat proof mug. Add the whipped cream mixture and stir until blended. Garnish with grated nutmeg and enjoy!
This makes more whipped cream than you need for just 1 drink, but it’s hard to whip less than 1/2 cup – and no doubt you’ll be making more than one of these toddies!
