HAPPY HOUR: Hot Toddy

With all this cold weather in Cincinnati, I have been getting the sniffles so frequently! David and I were out one night to dinner one night and I ordered a drink, when the waitress told me I sounded like I needed tea and she was going to make me a Hot Toddy. Of course I had never tried one (if you know me I rarely take adventures with my food) and of course I became obsessed! To the point where David and I immediately after dinner went and bought a teapot and whiskey! Here is my favorite recipe for a Hot Toddy and a few of my favorite home goods to go along with this amazing drink.

*coat the bottom of the glass with honey. add liquor and lemon. on the side heat

up a teapot full of hot water and make a cup of Chamomile tea. Add the tea

A Hot Toddy just feels right when you drink it out of a classic Irish Whiskey glass! I can't wait to get some of these! The Anchor Irish Coffee Glass from Katom Restaurant Supply for only $50 for 2 dozen!!
