Rum Runners Winter Cocktail, How-To

The Rum Runners Winter can be built absolutely wrong, which is how we start the video. When you accidentally pickup the 151 you end up with a ball of fire in your mouth. But, when you build the drink correctly you get proper tasting notes.

The tasting notes include a very non-sweet "watery" cocktail without any big body with a bit of vanilla, spicy notes that has an aroma of eggnog. Perhaps a colder version of a hot toddy like drink.

Try this drink warm, what do you think? Question of the day, do you like your cocktails warmed, hot or cold?
