Looking at this recent survey from iShare into alcohol people want to drink warm, although the traditional Scottish hot toddy seems very much unknown, the Japanese equivalent is a sake egg-nog called Tamoago-zake, but I don’t fancy the sound of it.
Between the 8th and 14th of October 2010 459 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 55.8% of the sample were male, 29.4% in their twenties, 32.5% in their thirties, and 38.1% in their forties.
Some of people’s favourite recipes included shochu plus umeboshi (sour plum) plus hot water, warmed white wine mixed with a little honey, red wine stewed with herbs, spices and dried fruit, plum wine diluted with hot water, kumquat wine with ginger and cut with hot water, rum and butter and sugar and boilng water, and finally rum and sugar cubes added to boiling milk.
