Well, tonight I have a bit of a sore throat and thought I would put the last corner of Wild Turkey to good work.
I remember as a child my Dad always having a Hot Toddy when we would come home from Ice Fishing. We would get our own too….sans whiskey, only Honey and Hot Water (my parents were bee keepers). It was definitely a happy memory.
The history of the a Hot Toddy can be found HERE, but y recipe for a Hot Toddy is :
- Cover the bottom of the glass with honey.
- Three fingers of HOT water
- Two fingers of Wild Turkey
I know some people like Lemon in theirs….but, we didnt have it and I am to lazy to go get some…..and it does fine without. So, I say add what you like and enjoy.
So, while ENJOYING my drinks….I started goofing on YouTube and realized how many versions of Whiskey in the Jar there are.
I particularly like the song, especially since my mate Gary introduced me to the Dubliners so many years ago and a great wiki on the song can be found HERE
I knew of their version and the duet with THE Pogues, plus the version that Metallica put out….yet the Thin Lizzy version is totally new (Metallica was a cover of theirs).
So I thought I would start a new poll….which was better.
I put 4 of them here for your perusal:
The Dubliners and Pogues
