Hot for Teacher

When winter sets in, we find ourselves on the hunt for new hot cocktail recipes – the richer and more luxurious, the better! So we were thrilled to find the Hot For Teacher recipe from PUNCH, courtesy of Matthew Belanger & Shannon Tebay at Pouring Ribbons in New York City.

It’s sort of a mash-up of tiki cocktails like the Pearl Diver and the “hot-buttered-something” group of drinks. It takes a little extra effort beforehand to mix up the batter, but you’ll be rewarded with an excess you can store in the freezer and use to make piping-hot drinks all winter long.

The original recipe calls for the honey syrup at a 2:1 ratio. If all you have is 1:1 and you don’t feel like making more, it’ll turn out fine, if a little less sweet. The resulting batter will be a little runnier, so you may want to store the leftover batter in a small covered dish instead of wrapping it in plastic wrap like you might do with a firmer batter.

Ingredients

Instructions

Begin by making the batter. Let the butter come up to room temperature, and whisk in the honey syrup, cinnamon syrup, vanilla syrup, allspice dram, and salt.

Add the rum, banana liqueur, cream of coconut, and bitters to a heatproof mug. For each serving, add one ounce (or 30 mL) of the butter batter, and four ounces (or 120 mL) of hot water. Whisk until thoroughly combined and garnish with a cinnamon stick or banana chip.

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.
