Falkland Island Warmer

Falkland Island Warmer

1 1/2 oz. Drambuie
juice of 1/2 lemon
4 oz. hot water

Strain the lemon juice to remove pulp, add Drambuie and fill with hot water to desired dilution.

Another incredibly simple one, but just the thing for a damp and chilly day. The above is a combination of CocktailDB’s entries for the Hot Drambuie Toddy and Falkland Island Warmer. Oddly enough, Google has little to say in English on the subject — the drink appears on German and Japanese sites in the main. The two are combined here because, as one will see from the respective recipes, the differences are merely of quantity (more Drambuie and lemon in the toddy). Proportions be damned, I co-opt the name Falkland Island Warmer because it’s just more prosaic than the pedestrian Hot Drambuie Toddy. Drambuie itself is a honeyed whiskey, and as such unless the lemon is particularly sour, the additional sweetening (called for in the FIW) is overkill.

Update (09/10/05): Further research reveals “Falkland Island Warmer” to be Victor Bergeron’s name for the concoction, though he doesn’t lay claim to devising the drink itself. From Trader Vic’s Book of Food & Drink (1946):

A very charming and prim little old lady gave me the recipe for this drink many years ago. She called me over to her table, where she and a party of elderly women were having dinner, and told me about a drink the natives in the Falkland Islands used to make when they were cold and tired and in need of a stimulant. As she had a particularly un-romantic name, I named the drink the Falkland Island Warmer.
