This is considered a “hot toddy.”
5 maraschino cherries
1 t honey
1 stick cinnamon
2 oz good dark rum
In a heated mug, crush 4 of the cherries with the honey. Drop in the cloves. Add boiling water halfway up the mug and stir well with the cinnamon stick. Add the rum. Garnish with the cinnamon stick with a cherry impaled on it.
