Working on the house again up here in the cold town of Mooresville, North Carolina. As we Finished up the day working down next to the lake fixing up the dock, I felt like a nice hot rum drink would be in order for the evening to take the chill off of the body.
I immediately thought about the warmth of Pusser’s Gunpowder Proof Rum with it’s 109 proof strength would be perfect to make a warming cocktail. Grog is always good, but with a little bit of fooling around with the recipe it would be a perfect cold night warmer.
