Well it is cold and sometimes you need something hot, tempting and tasty… and I think it is still too early for mulled wine.

You will need per serving:
Coffee
Cinnamon Stick (or if you can find cassia bark use that it provides a better flavour)
Whipped cream (optional)
Sprinkle of nutmeg

Make a pot of strong filtered coffee enough for as many cups [or mugs lets face it Coffee Rum Hot Mug does not sound right] add the cinnamon stick to the coffee as you are making it and leave it sit for 10 minutes. Press the coffee.
Get your mug add 1 tablespoon of rum and top up with coffee. Heat in a microwave at 80% for 1 minute. If you don’t have a microwave it works well heated in a pot. Add whipped cream. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

I like this without the cream the nutmeg is crucial though it melds the flavours together.
This is an nice option instead of Irish Whiskey or Hot Port.
