  • “I added 2T of sweetened consensed milk (I had left over from another recipe).OMG!!! It tasted like butterscotch discs had melted on my tongue good!Move over warmed cider…You’ve been replaced!”

  • “I doubled the brown sugar (sweet tooth) and added milk for more of an Irish Creme drink. Gosh this was good. I think I’ll make this at Christmas instead of warm cider. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “Smooth drink, but definitely needs more than a dash of cinnamon.I used 1/2 teaspoon, and then added a dash of ground cloves.Thanks for posting.”

  • “A quick and easy way to fix a warm comforting drink. The “dash” of spices were a bit weak, I felt. Would definitely increase them to a more specific amount. I’d also consider adding at touch of cloves, if you like them. Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Easy, sized right (for two on a cold winter night), and uses the microwave! My kind of recipe. I need better rum, and I think I’ll play more with spicing, though cinnamon and nutmeg was a great start. I didn’t garnish with lemon. Hmmm, maybe I’ll have to try that tomorrow night ;-).”

  • “Great drink.We used it when we were chilled and felt a cold coming on.Really good on a cold winter night.”
