Sipped liberally during this episode of the podcast is our new Hot Buttered Rum recipe. If you have a vegan around you can leave out the butter batter and substitute with a teaspoon of sugar.
Some of the best cocktails have been around for a very long time. A good Hot Buttered Rum is a classic cold weather libation that is especially popular during the winter holidays. We see this one popping back up on many bar menus with the awesome resurgence of vintage drinks and spirits. Sunshine finally crafted his own recipe for the rum batter that you can now make by following this recipe.
What makes this version of an old time drink more special? Two things. Sunshine uses salted butter to add just a touch of savory to an otherwise sweet drink. And, by listener suggestion the recipe now includes a lightly brewed Earl Grey tea as the base vs. using plain hot water. Mahalo to our long time listener Mr. McKinley for the suggestion.
This happens to be our 13th Holiday Spectacular. Sunshine, Pumpkin, Starshine and Kalani are in the lounge drinking, gift giving and shooting the inebriated breeze. After round three Pumpkin educates the entire crew on the real meaning of the old Yankee Doodle Dandy song. Sunshine had no idea the fun tune from elementary school was a dig on gays in the late 1700’s….learning is fun. We share some unconventional ways to theme a party including using Hickory Farms sausages for picture taking. Our gift exchange is the usual challenge of describing what we are doing for an audio only audience. Pumpkin has a 7 minute sex timer and Kalani is fascinated with the cats of instagram. It truly is a special holiday season in the Zen Tiki Lounge.
