Hot Toddies

November 9, 2010

As much as I can’t stand the recent dark nights, I’m starting to kind of love the coziness of being at home and warm… and nothing warms me up quite like a Hot Toddy. This is easily my favorite toasty fall beverage for many reasons—one, it will cure the common cold, and two, it shares my beau’s name, Todd. There are multiple options for making this drink, you can use Brandy, Whiskey, Rum, lemons, oranges, honey, tea, etc., so I decided to try out a new version—the Apple Toddy. The result scored high with hot toddy himself and I loved how it made the entire kitchen smell like fall.

[ Cinnamon sticks, oranges and cloves boiling in apple cider—also the part that makes your kitchen smell amazing ]
[ Just a little Brandy will scare a cold away ]
[ Topped off with homemade whipped cream ]
