I’m continuing with hot cocktails for the month of January. Last week I suggested an Apple Cinnamon Gin Toddy. This week, I’ve turned a Rum Cow, which is usually served on the rocks, into a steaming mug of boozy goodness. A Rum Cow is basically milk and rum, with a little bitters and sugar added. Sometimes there’s vanilla or nutmeg added. I threw it all in there and heated it up.
The Hot Tipsy Cow will warm your soul on a chilly winter night. It certainly warmed mine.
- 5 oz. whole milk
- 1 1/2 oz. light rum (I’m sure spiced rum would be good, too)
- 1/8 tsp. vanilla
- 2 tsp. simple syrup
- 2 dashes aromatic bitters
- Ground nutmeg (or fresh if you have it)
- Put milk, rum, vanilla and simple syrup into a pan.
- Heat over medium-high until heated through, stirring occasionally. Do not allow it to come to a boil.
- Add bitters, stir, remove from heat and place in a mug.
- Sprinkle with nutmeg.
- What happens when you heat up a Rum Cow? It becomes a soul-warming, winter cocktail.
