    If so, have any of you tried a Bloody Mary with tequila?

    Pretty tasty but it is a rather manly morning drink. (Especially as hair of the dog.) This drink is usually called a Bloody Maria. ;f

    Bloody Mary is one of my all time favorite cocktails.
    When we were in Cancun three weeks ago, we always started off our day with those.

    I stick to vodka though. I swore off tequila many years ago.
    Yup, even when in Mehico, I had zero tequila.

    Just about every cookbook I own has a drink section so I say post away with the drink recipes. :) I'd like one for Hot Buttered Rum please. ;a

    Patricia, I've never had Hot Buttered Rum and honestly, it doesn't sound very good, but here are a few recipes I found for ya: :)

    2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    1 pinch salt
    3 sticks cinnamon
    6 whole cloves
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    2 cups rum
    heavy cream -- whipped
    ground nutmeg -- for topping

    Put all ingredients, except rum and cream into crockpot. Add 2 quarts hot water. Stir well. Cover pot and cook on LOW for 5 hours.

    Add rum; stir to blend. Serve from pot in warm mugs with a scoop of whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg.


    Single Serving of HBR - double or triple as needed:

    2 or 3 ounces dark rum
    Twist lemon peel
    Stick cinnamon
    2 cloves
    Sweet cider or water
    1 tablespoon sweet butter

    Put the rum, lemon peel, cinnamon and cloves in a pewter tankard or any heavy 12-ounce mug that has been rinsed in very hot water to warm it. Heat the cider or water to the boiling point and pour into the spiced rum. Add the pat of butter and stir well. Grate a little nutmeg on top. A cube of sugar may be added as well.

    Serves 1.

    In addition to buttererd rum, hot toddys try this:

    instant cider

    spiced rum

    add hot water, and one pack of cider to mug and flavor (with rum) to taste.

    wins points for parsimony and taste (hints a warning).
