Garnish (optional)



  1. In a bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer. Add the maple syrup, orange zest and spices and mix to combine.
  2. In a small pot, bring the water to a boil. Remove from the heat. Whisk in the spiced butter. Whisk in the rum. Set aside.


  1. In another bowl, whisk the cream and sugar with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  2. Pour the hot drink into four mugs. Garnish with the whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon, if desired.


Depending on your tastes, you may prefer a lighter concentration of rum, about 1 oz (30 ml) per serving, to allow the flavour of the spices to really shine.
