Malted Milk Powder in your Smoothie?
avatar

If you stopped by a soda fountain today, which you can hardly do anymore, you’d find hand-made Cokes, you’d have also seen a stand holding a container of Horlick’s Malt Powder. Now, these are all gone, except powdered malt which is now readily available in supermarkets near the cocoa and hot drink section.  

Malt starts as sprouted barley which is dried then ground into powder.

There is no hard, set recipe for Hot Buttered Rum except it contains at least a goodly amount of rum, melted butter and fragrant spices. Adjustments vary in sweetness, spiciness and creaminess. 

The hot toddy cocktails we know and love today have their roots in the old days, when druggists might have prescribed them for relief against the aches and pains the bitterly-cold winters brought. Butter has been used in hot drinks since the days of Henry VIII. After molasses began being imported to Colonial America from Jamaica, and distilleries opened in New England in the 1650s, colonists began adding distilled rum to hot recreational beverages such as toddies and nogs.
