Biersuppe


Maybe heisse Biersuppe :D
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Stolichnaya vodkas used to come with these neat little plastic molds where you could add water and freeze your own shot glass. That way you store at room temp, and serve icy chilled shots. I gave mine away because I don't entertain much anymore. Thanks, kids.

As some people already says, we use sake bottle called とっくり(徳利) or ちょうし(銚子) to heat sake, because regular sake is bottled too large (1.8liter) to drink up in a day and too large to warm.
1) boil water by using a pan or a kettle.
鍋かヤカンに水を入れて、火にかけます。
2) when water is getting boiling(?), put the sake bottle in the pan or the kettle.
水が沸騰しかけたら、お銚子(徳利)を鍋またはヤカンに入れて温めます。
Or using microwave is also popular.
電子レンジを使うのも一般的です。

I guess a kind of mini wine bottle(around 200ml) is nice to use as とっくり, if it is plastic or heatproof.

The temperature of sake depends on type of sake and your taste. As papa Tony says, some kind of sake(like だいぎんじょう) should be chilled rather than to heat.
温度は酒の種類やその人のお好みで。大吟醸などは冷やして飲む方が美味しく飲めます。

see Type of Sake page also.

「お酒はぬるめの燗がいい♪」と歌の文句にもありますが、これはだいたい人間の皮膚の温度(36-37℃)で「人肌(ひとはだ)」と呼ばれます。 :)

I thought they were great, especially when I started freezing orange juice and other schnapps and flavors in them instead of just water. Pour in the vodka and let the tasty joy begin. I guess cleaning them out and storing them was the "pain" part for me...but still worthwhile. If only they created rubber molds or something like the IKEA ice trays.

the heat can start evaporation, but direct flame will burn the alchohol out.. when in doubt, leave the liquor out.. in otherwords, if you are not sure that you can burn the liquor out or don't know how to, 9 times out of 10 you won't get it out and will have a bit of a buzz to remind you that it's there..

rum cake is a prime example of the potency of not evaporating the liquors..
