Captain Morgan “Cran” Hot Toddy!

IMG_1751 (1)With the chilly weather approaching, nothing is as soothing as a Hot Toddy with the right amount of spiced rum to take away all the chill in the air. I happen to love sitting along the east river (in NYC) in the fall and winter while sipping one of these delicious and classic hot cocktails.

Captain Morgan Cannon Blast is perfect for hot toddy season! It’s “AN INTENSELY DELICIOUS NEW SHOT. THE SWEET CITRUS DELIVERS A PLEASING AND DELICIOUS FRONT END WHILE PROVIDING A FINISH WITH A WARMING (BUT NOT OVERWHELMING) SENSATION”- CaptainMorgan.com

The sweet citrus notes in this rum make for the perfect combination with cranberry and licorice. This hot cocktail is sure to cure all your fall and winter blues! I made these Cran-Toddy’s into Hot Toddy “Shots” using the Mini Mason Jar Shots by True Fabrications. These mini mason jars are perfect for a party or brunch when gathering with friends, and can withstand the heat from the toddy cocktails!
