Hot, soothing, sweet from the honey and rum, but balanced by the meyer lemon and sage, it really did make me feel better.
Meyer Lemon and Sage Hot Toddy
- 1 TBS honey
- 1/2 c. water
- 4 sage leaves, washed
- 1 small meyer lemon
- 1 1/2 oz. Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
- Add the honey, water, and sage leaves to a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat until sage is fragrant and honey is dissolved, about 4-5 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the syrup from foaming up, and do not let it come above a gentle simmer. Remove from the heat, remove and discard the sage leaves, and pour the syrup into a pre-warmed glass.
- Cut the lemon in half, and squeeze 1-2 tsp of juice into the glass. Cut a slice of the remaining lemon for garnish. Add the rum and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
