Malted Milk Ball Hot Toddy for Halloween   3 comments

The Christmas Drinking Season seems to start earlier and earlier (the one for this year, for example, started in Reagan’s first term as President).  With Halloween, I reckon it is the OFFICIAL start, though, so here’s a recipe I made up when we first moved to England at the start of 2009:

Malted Milk Ball Hot Toddy

2 heaping spoons of Horlicks (or other malted beverage powder)
2 spoons of Nesquik (or Bosco, or whatever)
2 shots of vodka¹
Boiling water to fill the mug

What makes it spooky?  That’s my Edgar Allen Poe mug!


¹ Traditionally, this is made with bourbon or dark rum — both of which are grand — but the only brown liquor I have tonight is single malt.
