That's the Spirit!

Pin It
WELL YOU CAN call off the search now, I'm still alive. The New Year is already upon us but the overflow of alcohol has not stopped. I've been swamped with work and more work, but I just wanted to pop in and quickly share an drink that has been helping take the edge off my long days.




Rum & Vanilla Froth Toddy

  • 1 cup sweetened almond milk
  • 1 oz dark rum (I used Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • dash nutmeg & allspice

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, heat, whisk until frothy and transfer to mug.


Nutmeg from a kit I received for Christmas.

I've been using an insulated mug I recently picked up from my local home goods shop, and I can't rave enough about how great these are. First, it is heat resistant so that you can have a steamy drink and not burn your hands on the glass. Secondly, the design is 2-layer to prevent condensation. The artistic side of me also appreciates the optical illusion effect and the fact that these pieces are mouth blown. 

Be warned though: these Bodum mugs aren't cheap, and they're very fragile. They're almost as delicate as crystal, and even though the label says you can put these in the dishwasher, I wouldn't risk it. Especially at 15 bucks a pop. Purchase your own set of two from Amazon.com here.

Happy Drinking,
Margaret
