Ingredients

  • 150ml dark rum (you can use whisky or brandy if you prefer)
  • 200ml Stone’s Ginger Wine
  • 8 whole cloves, lightly bashed
  • ½ lemon, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp light brown soft sugar
  • 200ml boiling water
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 25g butter
  • 4 long rosemary sprigs

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients, apart from the butter and rosemary, in a small pan over a medium heat. Warm, stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the toddy is steaming (don’t boil).
  2. Add the butter and stir until melted. Divide the toddy among heatproof glasses or cups, then add a rosemary sprig to each one.
