The Hot Toddy

Evidently January 11 is National Hot Toddy Day.  And now that I'm a fan of the sweet brown liquor, I might have to start having these.  I'll keep the colds away and feel all warm inside at the same time.

If you're out and about in DC, you can find hot toddies in several spots around town.  See this article from DCist for more information. If you're interested in having them in your own home, try this recipe.
