Ingredients:

• 3 oz dark rum

• 2 tbsp dark maple syrup

• 3 tsp loose English breakfast tea

• 2 star anise

• 2 whole nutmeg

• 2 lemon wedges

• Lemon rind for garnish, if desired

Directions:

1. Fill the Capresso H2O Select with cold, filtered water.  Set temperature to 190°F and push On/Off button to start heating.

2. Fill 2 tea infusers with loose tea.  Set aside.

3. When heated, distribute between 2 glasses, leaving an inch of space at the top. Place a tea infuser in each glass, along with a star anise, a nutmeg ball, and a lemon wedge. Steep for 5 minutes.

4. Once steeped, remove ingredients. Divide rum and maple syrup between the 2 glasses

5. Garnish with lemon peel, if desired.
