WINTER COCKTAIL RECIPES

3 Hot Toddy Recipes - Scotch, Rum, & Mezcal!

3 Hot Toddy Recipes – Scotch, Rum, & Mezcal!

Today I’m showing you three different recipes for the Hot Toddy! The toddy is a style of drinks that predates the cocktail (it’s super old). Original recipes were served both hot and cold, and consisted of a base spirit, sugar, and water. Since then, recipes have evolved to include teas, citrus, and spices. It seems everyone has a go-to recipe, so I thought I’d share mine along with a couple of variations – all tasty, all comforting. Hope you’re all enjoying the new year! Stay cozy, everyone. Cheers!

How to Make Butterbeer: A Delicious Harry Potter-Inspired Drink

How to Make Butterbeer: A Delicious Harry Potter-Inspired Drink

Butterbeer is not a traditional Christmas drink, but it’s great to know how to make this delicious Harry Potter-inspired drink. It really hits the spot on a cold winter day! Despite it being popularized by J.K. Rowling, making it a magic beverage loved by witches and wizards of Hogwarts (and Muggles everywhere), the original “Buttered Beere” recipe dates back to at least the 16th century. So today in today’s edition of Old vs New, I’ll make it the way it was made more than 400 years ago – with a good quality British Ale as the base – followed by an elevated modern version with IPA and Spiced Butter Syrup, topped with Butterscotch Foam. If you are into rich and decadent drinks, get out your Advanced Potion-Making textbook and enjoy today’s episode. Cheers!

The Tom & Jerry - the most cozy, fluffy holiday drink ever!

The Tom & Jerry – the most cozy, fluffy holiday drink ever!

Today’s drink is a cozy one – the Tom & Jerry! This is a holiday favorite that’s been around for 200 years. What makes it so memorable is the texture – something created by using a batter. The batter should be enjoyed fresh, and most recipes require a large group to consume it all – so it really is perfect for a holiday party. This is a smaller recipe that’s perfect for 2-3 people, but it’s easily scaleable to serve the masses – if that’s your goal. Liberties can, and should be taken. It’s common to replace the hot water with hot milk, essentially creating hot eggnog. Or, if you want it richer, you could add softened butter to the batter and steer this drink closer to a hot buttered rum. Whatever approach you choose, may this fluffy, comforting drink warm your bones. Cheers!

Master The Classics: Tom and Jerry | The Educated Barfly

Master The Classics: Tom and Jerry

The Tom and Jerry is a Christmas time cocktail which has several stories surrounding it’s creation. Jerry Thomas claimed to have created the cocktail and named it after his two pet rats, which would perch on his shoulders or atop his bowler cap. Thomas claims to have invented the drink in 1842 in the Planter’s House Hotel in St Louis and included it in the first edition of his Bartender’s Manual in 1862. Thanks to the expert Sleuthing of David Wondrich we now know that it was referenced in a Salem Gazette article in 1827 which would have been three years before the flamboyant Professor was born.
