What is the whiskey cream?

 TAGS:The whiskey cream is a drink made of whiskey, condensed milk, cream, chocolate syrup, instant coffee and vanilla extract. One of the most popular ones is the Baileys, owned by RA Bailey & Co. of Ireland. Most whiskey creams have an alcohol content of 17% by volume.

You can make your own homemade whiskey cream. The only real difference you will find with the commercial one is that the process used tends to homogenize the cream by mixing the ingredients that avoid the separation in the bottle once stored. Its life is 24 months; therefore you must verify the date on the label. The homemade whiskey cream should be drunk in two months.

The whiskey cream is widely used alone with a little ice, but it can also be used as an ingredient in cocktails of different types, there is a drink called Horlicks which consists of coffee and whiskey cream without heating. The whiskey cream is one of the favorite drinks of the women for its delicate and delicious taste of whiskey.

When making homemade whiskey cream it is not necessary to leave it several days at rest. You can prepare it the day before or the day of your celebration, and serve it right away. It will have the same soft color, creamy consistency and delicious flavor that you like in your commercial whiskey cream.

The rise of rum

 TAGS:The WHO shared new statistics about the average baskets in the United Kingdom. The results show a significant change in the consumer?s habits, more specifically in the alcoholic beverage consumption: it still tends to decrease.

In the UK, alcohol consumption declined for several years in-a-row. The lowest percentage was recorded in 2011. It appears that average consumers prefer to choose white rum over other drinks like champagne, which sales reduced dramatically.

The demand constantly changes and we can ask ourselves if it is a reflection of the society?s evolution. But if we take a closer look at the study we can see that blueberries, salami, e-books and even men T-shirts sales are decreasing too. Not easy under those conditions to figure a general trend from those statistics… However, let?s play a little bit and allow ourselves to imagine an explanation to the ?Rise of the White Rum?

What is pushing the UK into abandoning champagne? Champagne represents luxury, victory, effervescence, and sparkling occasions. Nowadays, it may also convey a certain idea of overdoing things. On the contrary, rum seems to fit any kind of events, from the most mundane parties to the average teenage binge drinking nights. In effect, rum has a large price range, depending on its aging and quality.

White, gold and black rum are the result of the fermentation and distillation of sugar cane. The barrels of oaks, the sugar cane quality, the aging and the distillates used are decisive in the final flavour of the beverage. If you choose a medium quality rum, you can still use it as the main ingredient of the two popular cocktails Pina colada and Cuba libre.

Digestive liquors for Christmas dinners

 - The company Christmas dinner, Christmas dinner, Christmas Eve dinner, New Year’s Eve, New Year… we have ahead a few days of heavy digestions and as I am always thinking in your health I have prepared for you in advance a good range of liquors to help wash it down which will put us on the road to a deserved nap.

In my list of the best digestive liquors I will put the Spanish orujo de hierbas one first. Smooth, delicious and yellow, because I like it better than the transparent one, which is also made of herbs. If you are in Spain you can order a ?chupito de hierbas? or you can also name it ?orujo de hierbas?.

When I do not get to not finish the meal with one of these spirits from Galicia (in the North West part of Spain), I go to the other end and I order a Pedro Ximenez which is absolutely perfect accompanying desserts and it is also the best way to start the digestion with that sweet little touch that gives to us.

A little less sweet and with a sour point, we find the world famous Jägermeister that although works perfect as the culmination of a sumptuous menu, it is also a great option in other kind of situations: accompanying beers, or when at the end of the night you order ?the last one? for the road. It is also very good during lunch, if you like the typical Northern Europe meals in which, as tradition dictates, the food must be watered with beer and schnapps that go down to the tune of ” Skål “.

Coffee liquor also has its place in this collection of digestive liquors. Also, I must say that it is not only is good for drinking but also for eating as you can use to cook some scrumptious desserts. And if you don?t believe me, ask it to my guests when I feel inspired with pastry.

However, for me the coffee rises to full power when I have the chance to complement it with its perfect match: Baileys. Coffee, Baileys and lots of ice. It is impossible to drink just one. I know there are other options in this liquor market, the Mint is one of them, but I prefer the classic one.

To end this list with my proposals, I want to add some non alcoholic liquors. Flavors: every imaginable. Possibilities: many, even taking the car right after to go home or to go shopping, which is something you cannot do if in addition to the wine during the meal you have decided to end it with some of my first suggestions.
