Elle Can't Cook: Hot Toddies

It's cold and you want to get warm. Or maybe you have a cold and want relief. Either way, these hot toddies are exactly what Dr. Sees ordered. Here are 3 hot drinks for you to enjoy:

Hot Buttered Rum

When I was sick a couple of months ago, I called my Mama for some sage advice and cold remedies. She suggested a Hot Buttered Rum Toddy for my sore throat and it worked like a charm.
  • Mash 2 tbsp butter with
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar add to
  • 3 shots dark rum and
  • Microwave for 1 min.
  • Stir until everything is dissolved and sip
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream and add shaved cinnamon or nutmeg
  • You can also add some boiling water to the rum
Hot Spiked Chocolate 

  • Cook hot chocolate according to package directions
  • Add Amaretto & stir
  • Add cream or marshmallows
  • Options: Frangelico, Kahlua, or Bailey's Irish Cream 
Coconut White Hot Chocolate 
  • Melt white chocolate
  • Slowly stir in warm milk
  • Add 1 shot of coconut rum and stir well
  • Add whipped cream with alcohol 
  • Garnish with toasted coconut & shaved white chocolate

What're your fave hot toddies?
PS--Be smart/responsible and be of legal drinking age!


  1. Hot spiked chocolate sounds good to me!

  2. Mmm, they seem delicious. It's so cold that hot drinks are perfect.

  3. Yum....I love a hot toddie and spiked hot chocolate. I'm coming to your house.

  4. Oh Girl! I bought a brand new bottle of Rum last week for my bread pudding...now I have something else to add it to! Can you drink these for breakfast ;)

    Hapy Friday Friend!!

  5. YUM the hot chocolate coconut sounds delicious! xoxo jcd http://cornflakedreams.blogspot.com/

  6. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways.

    ...thanks...sweet sugar...you are lovely...

  7. yum yum!
    have a warm week end dear!

  8. Yummy! They all sound wonderful!

  9. Of the three, the hot spiced chocolate is the one for me :)

  10. The Coconut White Hot Chocolate sounds great, I'd love to try it!

  11. Another yummy thing to add to hot chocolate is Jameson. Also great in Hot Apple Cider.

  12. I've never had a Hot Toddy before. I'm definitely a huge fan of homemade hot chocolate. I've been drinking it all this winter! I'll have to try it spiked. Happy Friday!

  13. I've had such a crap day, I might just try this out.

    Thanks, Elle!

    Mae Lu, @ thereafterish.

  14. How have I not spiked hot chocolate before?

  15. All those drinks you describe sound irresistibly good...
    I can't decide on my personal favorite, it depends on my mood. But anything hot, sweet and spiked will do it for me, for example hot choc with mint snaps!

  16. Coconut white hot chocolate?! UM!!! LE YUM!!
