Mom put warm clothes on and Daddy and I made some snowballs on the front lawn. Then the neighbor boy came and threw and hit me with a snowball. I cried. He was a brat!  :o(

   SOAPBOX ...... Ok, people, for the last 51 years you have known smoking is bad for you and yet you continue to smoke! It's not only bad for you, but bad for anyone around you, it's expen$ive, it causes litter and dirty ashtrays (ugh), and besides you don't smell very good!
Look ..... I feel it's my duty to bug my friends about this. I'm a reformed whore, I used to smoke. So, been there, done that. Quit now! The doc didn't list Jerry's heart as the cause of his death, he listed on the Death Certificate "smoking" as the cause! Wake up ....

National Hot Toddy Day

Hot Buttered Rum History

A cocktail made with boiling water, sugar and spices is traditionally referred to as a "toddy," and made with whiskey or sherry. Warm alcoholic beverages such as glogg, mulled wine and toddies originated in Northern Europe, where beer, cider, wine and spirits were mulled with sugar and spices to add some cheer to cold winter days.
Hot buttered rum is a toddy (specifically, a rum toddy). Toddies can be made of any spirit—bourbon, brandy, tequila, Scotch and other whiskeys are popular.
Hot buttered rum was a favorite in Colonial America.  Rum is a New World spirit, made of molasses, a by-product of sugar refining. Distilleries in the Colonies were making rum from the molasses by the 1650s, and “hot buttered rum” joined the toddies and nogs of English tradition (a nog is a beverage made of beaten eggs).
Hot buttered rum is traditionally made with dark rum, which has been aged in oak barrels to develop a deeper, molasses flavor. You can use light rum or spiced rum for a milder or spicier flavor, respectively. Dark rums can also be drunk straight.
You may see photos of, or recipes for, creamy toddies, which add cream or ice cream to the basic recipe. These are new interpretations, not traditional toddies, which were not cream beverages.

Hot Buttered Rum Recipe

Ingredients Per Serving
  • 1 small slice unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 pinch each allspice, ground cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg, as desired
  • 2-3 ounces dark rum
  • Boiling water
  • Optional garnish: cinnamon stick, lemon wheel, star anise
  1. Place the butter, sugar and spices in an Irish coffee glass, glass mug
    or other mug. Cream together (muddle).
  2. Add rum (three ounces for a stronger drink).
  3. Add an equal amount of boiling water. Stir well.
  4. Garnish as desired. Serve immediately.
If the drink is too strong for your liking, add more boiling water.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

The mixture of butter, sugar and spices is referred to as the “batter.” It can be made in advance, with rum and boiling water added as the drinks are requested. For a larger recipe:
  • Mix 1 stick unsalted butter, 1 cup light brown sugar (you can add more—up to 2 cups—for a sweeter drink), 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and a pinch of ground cloves. Cream ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate, covered.
  • Per cup, add 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the Irish coffee glass or mug, then top with 2-3 ounces of rum and an equal amount of boiling water. Stir well, garnish as desired.
