Something Warm for a Cold February Evening

   Today is Groundhog Day 2013, If The little critter would stick his head out hedre in Key West today he would definitely see his shadow and we would be in for a long winter ahead, but he is in Pennsylvania, and I don't have a clue what the weather there is like today.  I just know one thing about that, it is a lot colder than I want to be.    This is a great legend and one that has been carried on for a long while, I'm hoping for a shorter winter rather than a longer one.

     I'm thinking that a new hot cocktail would be in order for the Groundhog Day.   I'm thinking a mug of coffee, and some fun rum stuff would be appropriate.  Try this idea, I think it will fill the bill.

Bahama Bob's Groundhog Coffee

  • 1 1/2 oz. Rum Chata
  • 1/2 oz. Amaretto
  • Mug of Hot Black Coffee
  • Fresh Ground Nutmeg
Place the Rum Chata and the Amaretto in the coffee mug, top up with fresh hot coffee, stir and grate the nutmeg on top.  

Perch yourself in front of the fireplace if appropriate or on the aft deck of the boat and enjoy the warmth of this wonderful little cocktail.   Mmmmmmm.  ;o)
