Dear King Cocktail, I work at a British Pub in Japan and I have been asked to make a special "Winter Cocktail" list for our Menu. I would appreciate it if you could give me a list of recipes that are connected with the winter season. Thank you very much in advance, Respectfully, Mona

Hi Mona, Here are a couple ideas for your winter menu;

HOT BUTTERED RUM 1 oz. Dark Rum or Spiced Rum 1 oz. Light Rum Pat of Compound Butter (spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, and brown sugar) 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup Hot water Also try hot cider Mix all ingredients in a goblet glass and stir a few times to melt the butter. Garnish with cinnamon stick. Have some fun and try different variations of this recipe by using spiced rums, or try sweetening it with maple syrup or brown sugar. Hot tea can be used instead of hot water, Apple Jack instead of rum. Of course there is always the old standby;

IRISH COFFEE Originally prepared at Shannon Airport in Dublin. Found a home in the United States at the Buena Vista across from Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco. 1 1/2 oz. Irish Whiskey 1 oz. Brown Sugar Syrup Coffee Lightly Whipped Unsweetened Cream Combine Whiskey, coffee and syrup in an Irish coffee glass. Ladle one inch of cream on top.

Dear King Cocktail: You are probably the world's foremost authority on
mixed drinks. Right? Sooo, please help me out. My sister-in-law won't visit or speak to me since I forgot how to make her favorite drink, called "Buttered Almond." I don't miss her that much, but she won't let
my brother come around either. Please help.

Dear Lonely Lady,
I have come across two versions of this drink and you can try them both;

1 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps
1 oz. Amaretto
1 oz. Vodka

Shake with ice and serve up or on the rocks.
