Whisky For Breakfast

Postby Liechtenstein » Mon Jun 01, 2009 6:18 pm

Whisky for breakfast...why not?

Oatmeal With Whisky and Maple Syrup

-make oatmeal as you normally would.
(I make it with 2 cups water and 1 cup oatmeal)
-remove from stovetop and stir in 1¼oz (40ml) of whisky.
-add maple syrup to sweeten as desired.

This is not a joke! To those of you concerned about alcohol intake at breakfast, you worry too much; the alcohol vaporizes when mixed into the hot oatmeal. The remaining whisky esters marry perfectly with maple syrup.

I don't recommend an Islay with this recipe. It works better with sweeter whiskies, like bourbon.

Why not make the porridge knock back the dram in true Floyd style and have a breakfast to remember. :)



Ps don't forget the salt.

Good idea, especially in parts of the world where maple syrup is pricey.

I like Les Taylor's idea too...I'm working at home tomorrow, so maybe I'll try it!

For Americans only:

You can also make grits with bourbon & corn syrup.

Surprise your wife with a new taste! (Just don't tell her what you put into her grits.)
