Ingredients

  • 8 oz prune juice
  • 3 oz spiced rum
  • 1 medium orange, for juice and garnish
  • 1 cinnamon stick

Directions

  1. Using a vegetable peeler or a small, sharp knife, carefully cut 4 strips
    of zest (remove any white pith) from the orange, then juice the
    orange (yielding at least 3-4oz., reserving 1 TBSP).
  2. Pour the prune juice, spiced rum and fresh orange juice into a small
    saucepan, and then add the cinnamon stick and two strips of the orange zest.
  3. Warm over medium-low heat (slight simmer) for 5 minutes.
  4. While the cocktails are warming, prepare the sugar plums by rolling two prunes in the remaining 1 TBSP orange juice (or water will work) and set on a plate, sprinkle with sugar to coat, and allow to dry for 30 seconds, then sprinkle with sugar again.
  5. Divide the cocktail between two mugs. Garnish each mug with a piece of orange zest and a sugar plum on a cocktail pick, and a cinnamon stick.
