Hot Rum Cow Issue 9 (The Cocktail Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Let’s cocktail! From invention to perfection – through degradation and resurrection, Hot Rum Cow explores 500 garish years of the muddled and mysterious, contradictory and chintzy, innovative and intoxicating history of the mixed drink.
Pull up a stool at Cocktails & Dreams and let us be the worldly-wise mentor Bryan Brown to your naïve young upstart Tom Cruise as we guide you through. Putting the shaker to one side for a moment, there’s also time for a Beer World Cup, an evening in a cloud of booze, ant gin and critter bitters, beer goggles de-bunked, biodynamic wine debated, Sibelius sloshed, and the Cybertron bar all the Transformers are talking about.
Hot Rum Cow magazine is an independent publication for people who are fascinated by great beers, wines & spirits – and the extraordinary stories behind them. The Hot Rum Cow magazine is named after a warm cocktail made from rum, milk, brown sugar and nutmeg. Some people love it, others don’t get it – and that’s exactly the sort of magazine we are publishing. Hot Rum Cow magazine was published four times per year by White Light Media (Edinburgh).
