  1. Mix together the turmeric, malted drink, ginger and nutmeg with 3 tbsp hot water to make a paste.
  2. Warm the milk in a large pan over a low heat until just steaming. Stir in the malt paste and continue to heat gently for 3-4 mins, being careful not to boil it and whisking continuously until the paste is completely dispersed. Whisk in the honey and stir for 1 min more.
  3. Stir in the rum, if using, then sieve the mixture into a jug. Divide between 4 mugs; top with a little extra nutmeg to serve.
