I can't let a thread like this go by without pointing you at my hot buttered rum recipe.

That stuff's responsible for more Christmas weight gain than pretty much anything else I make at this time of year.

Hmm that really sounds good I only need to find a place that sells maple syrup and allspice no one really uses that in the Netherlands.

while looking for nutmeg on google they want to help me look for deadly, suicide, drugs, tripping, poison, smoke and sniff...
Oke were open about dug usage but this is... bad...

but does it matter what rum i would use? pale, brown, dark brown?

Mobey - entirely a matter of taste. I like a dark rum, but if you prefer something lighter, there's nothing to stop you using that instead.

Anything interesting?

OT but without giving too much away (it's better to keep somethings out of the public domain) one of my non-computer interests is poisons, antidotes and toxicology etc. and while looking for a vcr for the kid yesterday (don't ask! :) he couldn't have asked me to look for one 3 weeks ago when I stood a chance of not having to have to probably buy one as now the paper based on the video is due on monday) I found my stash of books on the subject. I'm always looking for new ideas in the field even though my favourite "method" is the 13th Oyster and an Aspidistra

OK back to the nice sane subject of Alcohol, Isn't meths a pretty colour and if you add lemonade right tasty

My favourite tipple... of course I can't see the colour any more

[He's only kidding, children, you shouldn't be drinking meths - even as an AlcoPop.]
