Another edition of ‘Christmas in the Kitchen’….
….or perhaps I should say, Christmas in the Liquor Cabinet.
I’ve had a few inquiries about the recipe I referred to in my post THE CYNICAL ELF about this recipe, so I am graciously passing it along. My suggestion is to just be honest with yourself, and quadruple the recipe. After all, it’s unsafe to operate a stove after you’ve had a drink or two.
The Snug Sailor
1 tbsp five-spice powder
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 oz Spiced Rum
2 oz Crabbies Ginger Beer
1 oz 35% Cream
1 oz 2% Milk
2 oz dulce de leche
1/2 lemon (zest & juice)
nutmeg for garnish
Stir five spice together with sugar
Rim a mug with the spice & sugar mixture
Add remaining ingredients to a pot and heat over medium heat
Whisk constantly until bubbling.
Serve in the mug rimmed with spiced sugar
Please enjoy responsibly in the cozy embrace of your rugged man-of-winter by the lights of the Christmas tree, or wrapped up fireside after a long session of merry-making.
Don’t drink and drive. Drink and make love. Happy holidays…..
