Just in time for those cozy, holiday nights when you curl up next to the warm fire place, we have a couple of new hot cocktails to share.
Both of these drinks are variations on old-time favorites, but it is my infatuation with Hot Toddies that made Jacob Grier's Chamomile Hot Toddy catch my eye. In this drink Grier has taken a favorite (and inexpensive) bourbon and added two soothing flavors, chamomile and lavender. It is a fantastic rendition of the toddy that will have you chilled out from the holiday stress in no time.
The other hot drink that Lance Mayhew brought to us this week is "The Best Hot Buttered Whiskey" and if you love a steaming mug of Hot Buttered Rum you will love this one. As far as choosing the "right" whiskey, Lance has some suggestions that fit a variety of tastes. The single malts options are too intriguing to resist.
