Greetings from the Punky Kid

Postby The Punky Kid Rides Again » Fri Jan 12, 2007 12:57 pm

Hello all,

Happy to be here, and happy to be read. I am a classical novice, more along the lines of a cross between Springsteen and the Ramones. But, considering that I need to add a little culture to my life, I decided to hang out here for a bit.

Hopefully, I will gain a little knowledge and a little bit of fun.

Cheers to us all.

Welcome to the board PK!

Learning more about classical music, I predict, will be a rewarding experience for you. :)

We look forward to you posting, and keep listening.

Or should we ask every other one?

Hidey ho, good neighbor!

When it comes to larnin' we have people who can fool me with their discussions of fifths (I always thought a perfect fifth was Chivas Regal, but some of these musicianalistical types have other ideas), hemiolas, quavers, and what it takes to be an outstanding second fiddle.

Myself, I bore the hordes with tales of my general ineptitude regarding projects around the house, although I do tend to set the record straight in the political discussions running through the debate board. Oh, when it comes to records, I have something like 13-1400 of them in my basement.

Welcome aboard, and post often.

Chivas Regal....now there is one tasty beverage.

However, I am more of a Jameson's man myself. Nothing like drinking a whisky with a generous kick back. It gives as good as it gets.

Lately, however, I have been imbibing the Lemoncello. Smooth going down, but an hour later, it sure lets you know that its there.
:shock:

Anyone know where an honest boy can get an amen on that?

Not from me, I've never tried the stuff. I'm a wine and beer man myself.

Although there's nothing like a hot toddy for battling a cold, provided it's made with the right whiskey. I prefer Early Times for that.

For battling the cold, the one that surely does the trick is Hot Buttered Rum for me. Saved me more than a few times when I was out in the cold suffering through a tail gate party or two.

Hated to do it, but somebody had too. It's the Laaawww of the West.

I think a hot buttered rum and a hot toddy are similar drinks, at least as I' make them, although there is a hot rum toddy. I'm not sure how that differs from a hot buttered rum...

...research time, I guess.

Yes, I believe you may be right about the Hot Toddy and Hot Buttered Rum.

Guess we got homework to do...and I believe in being thorough.

It's a good thing I always had a thing for teachers.

Okay, lets see. Here's the recipe for Hot Buttered Rum:

1 oz light rum
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp butter
4 cloves

Add the sugar, butter and cloves to a coffee mug. Pour the rum, and stir well. Fill with boiling water. Stir again, and serve.


And here's a recipe for Hot Rum Toddy:

2 oz rum
1 tsp sugar
5 1/2 oz boiling water

Place a sugar cube or equivalent into an Irish coffee cup or mug. Fill 2/3 full with boiling water. Add rum and stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon, dust with nutmeg, and serve.


And the recipe for a Hot Whiskey Toddy:

1 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
1/4 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz sugar syrup
1 slice lemon
1 clove
4 oz hot water

Heat in a heat-resistant glass, and fill with hot water. Add a lemon slice speared with a clove, and serve.


Looks like the butter is the primary difference, based on these recipes. But my Hot Whiskey Toddy recipe uses butter, so I guess it would probably be properly called a Hot Buttered Whiskey.

I didn't see my recipe on line just doing a quick search. Mine comes from the Mr. Boston's Bartenders Guide, which I've had for about twenty years or more. It's similar to the Hot Whiskey Toddy recipe above, except that it uses butter and confectioner's sugar instead of sugar syrup.
