Hot Buttered Cider

Hot Buttered Cider cocktail with rum, butter, apple cider, honey, clove and cinnamon

Toddies as we know them can be traced as far back as the mid-nineteenth century, although “toddy” is mentioned as the name of a drink in records going as far back as 1638. The primary application of buttered toddies in the nineteenth century was the treatment of cold and flu symptoms. It may not have any true medicinal properties, but it sure does feel nice on a sore throat!

We found this recipe in Gaz Regan’s The Joy of Mixology, our favorite mixological tome. Regan credits the recipe to bartender Nick Hydos at New York’s Painter’s Tavern. In the book, it was called a Hot Buttered Rum – but we have a more rum-forward recipe we prefer for that moniker. Apple cider is really the star of this recipe, so we’ve changed the name to suit it. It’s such a good template, it holds up equally well with whiskey or brandy in place of the rum.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the honey, clove, and hot cider to a heatproof mug or glass. Stir well to mix, and add the rum, butter, and ground cinnamon. Stir briefly with a cinnamon stick, and serve the drink with the stick in the glass as a garnish.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
