The Violet Fern

A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

Flaming Black Stripe


3 oz dark rum
2 tsp molasses
4 oz boiling water
lemon twist
cinnamon stick
ground nutmeg
Dissolve molasses in your favorite mug with a bit of boiling water. Add the stick of cinnamon and lemon twist, then fill ‘er up not quite to the top (leave room for rum!) with boiling water. Pour on the rum letting it float on top. Here’s the fun part – ignite the rum, let it burn for a few seconds and then give it a stir to put out the flame. Add a dash of nutmeg and enjoy! (Single serving.)
This year’s Christmas card brought to you bloggers. Merry Christmas to you and all, and here’s to the new year! Hope you enjoy.
The mug featured in this painting was handmade by John Arnot, St. Lawrence Pottery.
