The weather is cooling down and we are getting ready to warm up with a Hot Toddy!

Today we welcome @gayanefood who is sharing this recipe for a classic Hot Toddy! If you aren’t familiar with this classic cold weather cocktail, it is not too sweet, keeps you nice and warm, and is lovely to slow sip or have as a nightcap.

A classic Hot Toddy is simply brandy or whiskey, honey, and water — But this recipe makes things a little tastier by adding orange, cloves, ginger, and a cinnamon stick. It’s an aromatic delight to sip on as it gets chilly. If you don’t sip this one while you’re bundled up outside by a fire, you are missing out on one of our favorite cold weather traditions!
