An American spin on a classic hot toddy, this rum cocktail makes a deliciously warming drink that's perfect for chilly autumn and winter evenings. The gentle spices of the rum and cinnamon are balanced with sweet maple syrup, apple juice and cider, with melted butter for a rich, luxurious finish.

  1. In a large pan, melt the butter, maple syrup and cinnamon over a low heat.
  2. Increase the heat to medium, add the rum and leave to simmer for 1 minute. Pour in the apple juice and apple cider and heat for 2-3 minutes more, or until warmed through.
  3. Line up 6 heatproof mugs and put a cinnamon stick in each. Top up with the hot drink and serve immediately, garnished with a little grated nutmeg
