Rum Toddy

Good aged rum, with its rich, complex sweetness, takes particularly well to heat; we’re barely adding any water here, though if you’re looking for something a bit mellower, feel free to dilute to taste. Don’t skip the lemon wheel. It may look like just a garnish, but its aromas will be unleashed as soon as the hot drink hits it.

Instructions: In a saucepan, gently heat 2 ounces of aged rum, 1/2 ounce of raw sugar simple syrup (Sugar in the Raw or similar, dissolved in an equal part hot water), 1 dash of Angostura bitters, and a 1/4 ounce of water. Slowly heat until just warmed through. Place a lemon wheel in a heat-safe glass and pour the warm cocktail over the top.
