Today is National Hot Toddy Day (I may like saying National Hot Toddy Day more than I liked saying National Roast Suckling Pig Day)! A hot toddy is a warm cocktail that I like to drink when I'm in the mountains of Aspen. Okay, so I've never been to Aspen, but I imagine that a hot toddy would be the ideal drink on a snowy afternoon at a ski lodge. However, it would also make a great drink on any cold, winter day. So, instead of having your usual afternoon coffee or tea, have a hot toddy. For the recipe,
1 tbsp honey
3/4 glass tea
2 shots brandy
1 slice lemon
- Brew tea and fill a tall glass 3/4 full.
- Mix in honey. Mix in brandy shots.
- Add lemon slice and enjoy.
