Hot Rum-and-Pineapple Toddy Recipe

Happy Hour: Hot Rum, Pineapple, and Maple Toddy

Ever since two Fridays ago, I've been chained to my television watching the Vancouver Olympics. I'm not much of a sports spectator, but I have a soft spot for stories of sacrifice and redemption, and the Winter games have plenty of those.

Last night, I watched the USA face off against Canada in the hockey rink. The match had plenty of excitement and energy — plus those Canadian hotties in their maple leaf uniforms weren't too hard on the eyes, either.

I took it all in with a tipple that couldn't have been more fitting: a play on the hot toddy that's laced with cinnamon, pineapple, and the country's oh-so-emblematic maple syrup. To be the best Olympics couch cheerleader you can be, get the recipe.

Recipe for Hot Rum and Pineapple Toddy With Maple Syrup


1 cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup dark rum


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the pineapple juice, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, the lemon juice, and cinnamon stick to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes; remove from the heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon maple syrup until soft peaks form.
  3. Divide the pineapple-maple mixture among 4 small teacups or mugs. Discard the cinnamon stick. Add 1/4 cup rum to each cup; top with a dollop of maple whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 toddies.
