Looking for a drink that will keep me and my honey warm on a cold winter evening.
We don't drink that often, but something spicey would do.
What's in a Hot Tottie?
Or maybe something with cream?

Anyone suggest..

Dear Stv Cobbs;
Great question....
Some suggestions: glog ( glug) a scandinavian
spiced hot drink; wassail- a traditional Christmas drink or punch; coffee with frangelico
(a hazelnut liquor) or with B & B (brandy & benedictine) or with Bailey's Irish Cream or any liquor...
try our mixed drink & shooter recipes section
(button on your left) and look up drinks by ingredients you like or have on hand. Or type in hot tottie and see how many recipes you find.
Good luck. If you find something we don't have listed, please feel free to submit it.
Happy Holidays Very Happy

My favorite is a BFK. Equal parts Bailey's, Frangelico and Kahlua. Fill with hot coffee and garnish with whip cream. If you want to avoid coffee here are a few more...

Blueberry Tea- 3/4 oz amaretto, 3/4 oz grand marnier, fillwith hot water and use a grey tea bag. Garnish with cinnaman.

Hot Apple Pie- 1 1/2 oz of Tuaca, fill with hot cider.

Snuggler- 1 1/2 oz peppermint schnapps, fill with hot chocolate and garnish with whip cream.

Reply with quote

Here is a recipie for the elusive hot toddie:

Hot Toddy

Ingredients:
1 tblsp Honey
3/4 glass Tea
2 shots Brandy
1 slice Lemon
Mixing instructions:
Brew tea and fill tall glass 3/4 full. Mix in honey. Mix in Brandy shots. Add lemon slice and enjoy.

I generaly use a little more honey than called for, the juice of 1/4 lemon instead of just a slice and add a dash of nutmeg for a nice flavor with the brandy. Happy Holidays!!!

Ahem!

The Hot Toddy originally is made of [color=yellow:05dc932040][b:05dc932040]bourbon[/b:05dc932040] or [b:05dc932040]rye[/b:05dc932040], [b:05dc932040]water[/color:05dc932040][/b:05dc932040], lemon, sugar "simple" syrup/honey (personal preference) and occasionally with the addition of a clove or some other preferred spice. This has shifted acceptably to both Whiskey and Whisky as a fair substitute. Smile

[i:05dc932040]No tea![/i:05dc932040]

[That's a direct cut and past from Webtender, Jess. Don't always trust the Webtender database, they are after all submissions by individuals that make up those drinks, and regrettably, occasionally of questionable amount of cocktail evangelism integrity -- Wonder what that is? Visit or chat with DrinkBoy sometime, ewe'll learn well Cool ]

I have a link to a page of drinks often referred to as [i:05dc932040]Hot Toddies[/i:05dc932040] -- sort of like the only Martini is one made of Gin and all of the rest are actually [i:05dc932040]Cocktails[/i:05dc932040] mistakenly and commonly referred to as Martinis. I have to find the link and will supplement. There's a bunch of good Winter Warmers in the lot.


********

Regarding the BFK
Also, nice acronym for what was classically called a [b:05dc932040]B-51[/b:05dc932040]:

equal parts, layered (in this order)
considered a "pousse cafe"

Kahlua
Bailey's Irish Cream
Frangelico


Ah, but now I'm showing my bartender "age"! Laughing





[color=yellow:05dc932040]Edited to add link to a few winter warmer sorts:

Beans,
you are correct in the cut and paste, and in the correction that toddies generaly use rye, burbon or whisky and water, but I have found the one from the webtender a little more pleasing for my palate and a little more exciting than the other.
Sorry for the mix up.

No apologies sweetie! Cool

I agree it does sound yummy.... Think I'll try to sell one tonight and maybe call it Jessikate's Special Hot Toddy, eh? Wink

Cheers!

Reply with quote

Beans- Thanks for the history lesson old timer! Wink I didn't know the B-51 and the BFK were basically one in the same. The only difference in the recipe that I learned is that a BFK is usually served as a coffee drink. I have also served it shaken and strained a few times. Anyways, I now have yet another way to serve up a yummy drink. I went to the link you provided and was wondering what is in an Arctic Warmer? The site is under contsruction and I wasn't able to access the recipe. Being an Alaskan, it has roused my curiosity and I would like to add it to my list of Alaskan drinks. thanx-T
