Mid Century Drink Day - Hot Buttered Rum

So since it is drink day and it is freezing outside (It is 43 degrees!  Yeah I know I'm a whimp) I thought I would try a hot drink.  It took a bit of flipping to find one, but I did!  Hot Buttered Rum.

( The downer to renting is granite counter tops.....Booooo!)

RECIPE: 1.5oz. Jamaica Rum, 1 sugar cube, 4 cloves, 1 pat butter.  Put all ingredients in glass, add boiling water.

Seems easy to me!
Here are all the ingredients

Now I just need that boiling water.  If you don't have an electric kettle, I highly recommend one.  Mr.Honey bought one and I sort of rolled my eyes at it thinking it would be just another gadget taking up space; But! turns out we use it quite frequently.

Electric kettle...brings water to a boil in 60 seconds!


VERDICT: Not bad, I rather like it.  Warms you up quickly.  After making, I looked this drink up online and there are many variations.  Some use brown sugar, vanilla extract, and a medley of spices. (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg)  I think I might add some to see how it changes the taste.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


PS:  I just added all of the extras listed above...and this drink just became AMAZING!  Definite keeper.

Daydreaming – Murray I love you….

Do you daydreaming?  I do frequently; there is always some photo montage behind my eyes.  Images of something I want or something that has intrigued me.  Today, my daydream is a want….Murray.  I want Murray.  Who is Murray you ask….Murray is a 1958 Edsel Villager Wagon in white and teal…and yes he is people.  Isn’t he beautiful!?!  I have told Mr. Honey numerous times that if he loved me…he would get this for me…..but I haven’t come home to him in my driveway...yet!  A girl can dream can’t she…

From the mouth of Babes…my Babe…Mr. Honey

Ok normally I don’t share these sorts of things, but the fact is that Mr. Honey is freaking hilarious.  Every time he gets me giggling until I almost pee myself I think, YES! I will gladly take 50 more years of this please.

“I’m tired of being sick and sounding like a man” - Me
“You, don’t sound like a man.  You sound like a sexy chain smoking granny” – Mr. Honey
“What! No I don’t…” - Me
“Yes you do….I will call you Doris….come on, let me take you to an early bird special” – Mr. Honey

Mid Century Drink Day - Gertie's Garter

I’m back! ....a day late but none the less, let’s have a drink.
I have been MIA lately due to being sick… and as I laid in bed, home from work, I thought to myself I should be getting some prime blogging done…but all the energy I had was used to start the next episode of Medium on the lap top.  Let just say I watched a LOT of Medium and Ghost Whisperer (hey don’t judge me! These are great shows…I swear).  Thankfully I am feeling much better Dr. Robitussin and do not sound like a man anymore.  Seriously I answered a call from my brother and he thought Mr. Honey had picked up….not a good sign.
So now that I am back in the land of the living…and drinking….lets make a cocktail shall we.
This one is going to be quickie since I don’t really feel like hitting the local liquor store.  Luckily the drink gods are smiling upon me and it only took two tries to pull a cocktail number from the jar for which I had all the ingredients on hand.   SWEET!  #36  Gertie’s Garter.

RECIPE:  3 parts Dry Gin, 1 part Grapefruit Juice, 1 part Grenadine.  Shake well with ice and strain into glass.  Add fruit desired.

TIP:  If you are working to achieve a fully stocked bar like we are, I suggest to always keeps some small cans of fruit juices on hand.  We always have a few cans of tomato juice, grapefruit juice, and pineapple juice in the cabinet to use as mixers.  

So Viola!  The drink in my new "Executive" cocktail glass:

VERDICT:  Ok I'm really digging this one, it is a keeper....and I didn't think I liked Gin.  

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
