National Hot Toddy Day - January 11th

The polar vortex here in the US has certainly made things like Hot Toddies necessary! (Holy cow, has it been cold!) It's a favorite of folks trying to warm up, and with the hot water and lemon, actually pretty soothing for those with the sniffles. Need to make a larger batch for a party? Alton Brown has a recipe for slow cooker Hot Toddies!

I had one at the Irish Harp Pub in Niagara-on-the-Lake (simply called a Hot Whiskey), Ontario. They will kick you in the heinie if you're unaccustomed to them! And if you can, live Irish music improves the flavor.

Available at Amazon.
