I love my hot toddies but this looks very yummy too. I never realized that grog was made with tea. I always figured it was like a rum version of moonshine or something haha.

 I made up a godfather type concoction that's nice and warm too if anyone's interested. Godfather's are my go-to drink but since it's starting to get cold out I tried to find a way to make it hot. This is probably a drink already and I don't even know it  Cheesy
- 1 part Amaretto
- 1 part scotch
- pinch of ground cloves
- hot/steamed milk (I used my espresso steamer)
- garnish with some cinnamon
Yeah it's very sweet but mmmmm

Well, thank you for sharing! Sounds delish! (As does the other recipe that someone sweetly sumbitted in your comments). I sure could use a cup of that right NOW! It is FREEZING up in this cubicle farm of mine. It is just too bad that I answer phones for a living, haha! Might not sound so nice when I answer if I am all loopy and droopy, LMAO! When I get home tonight though... that's when I get to raid our brand new liquor fridge!! WOOT!

Have you had hot buttered rum? I thought it would be disgusting, I mean BUTTER in a drink? Ugh. But it's not, it's delicious. There are quite a few recipes online but I'd recommend the very basic until you know if you like it or not. I predict you will!



I got bored of Rum and Rootbeer one night and decided to just make some buttered Rum....OH MY...let me tell you why my bottle of rum is almost empty....

I love this exchange of adult beverages we have going here.

pretty sure we will need to switch roles and I need to head to Philly then. I have a super giant interest in brewing mead but for one have never had it and don't want to spend a half year-year aging something that I may not like.

I'm assuming you're in Pitt ... When we head out to cedar point in Ohio for the summer I'll bring a bottle for you to try.... Don't think the post office would want use to mail it... Smiley we make ours from kits but very once in a while we "add" to the recipe!

That buttered rum sounds yummy ESP since my son's bedroom is so freaking cold you can see your breath! The door was shut all day and oh boy is it cold in here! About another 30min and huge difference but until then, the dog and four blankets can cover us!

Then I'll go make some yummy warm drink before bed.  My DH has been making me a Carmel apple martini and oh boy is it good. I know it as apple schnapps and some sort of carmel liqueor, have to read the bottle.

Slightly related (and slightly random) but I was watching Alton Brown's "Punch" show the other day on alcoholic punches and he did a sailor type punch that had a base of tea and he claims that's the ancestor of the Long Island Iced Tea. He said olden times punches were 1 part sour (lime juice), 2 parts sweet (sugar), 3 parts strong (booze), and 4 parts weak (tea), and also a fifth thing was spice (nutmeg). Kind of interesting, but I love his show.

HEY!!! that's cheating!!!! I *KNOW* where you live Smiley  Ok, have to make a new batch and we can celebrate your new place from what, last year or something like that...
He does beer too if you want to try that?  That's where we started cause we didn't want to brew and not like doing the process.  It's prob one of the few times I get him into the kitchen beside when I try and make pasta...
there is some commercial meads on the market but I really don't think they taste as good as ours.  I'm not a big dry/tart fan.... I like things sweet.  I'm one of those who will ruin a great glass of Champaign by adding ginger ale to it.  
and yes, we've even done a ginger ale for the kids Smiley

and visiting Philly is fine by me!  me casa et sue casa (who's sue?)

Honestly, that is where I based the mod of mine from. I own every Godd Eats Episode / all the books so the research kinda happened by mistake.

I'm not big on flavoring martinis but that does sound pretty great for a cold night.
I'm always down to meet folks, even more so if there is something tasty involved.

1. Thank you for posting a delicious sounding recipe!
2. I'm so glad I stumbled upon this thread/post - it was 6 degrees here the other day and I'm craving something hot & tasty that will warm my belly too!
3. Mead is delicious, like alcoholic honey, my FIL brews and I always want to take home a bottle when we visit, maybe I will next time ...
4. Definitely trying some of this inspiration this weekend, huzzah!

Baha, that Simpsons episode is exactly what I thought of when I saw that question posted. Well played, sir.
