As the weather is cooler....I yearn for comfort and warmth. I sit by the fireplace, have a warm blanket around my legs, slippers... Oh so cozy! I love it! My husband and I usually spend our evenings this way watching our favorite tv show when the kiddos are asleep. We usually make ourselves a cracker and fancy cheese plate and have grown-up drink. And we've discovered.....TODDYS....
And not just a simple toddy of rum, hot water and cinnamon....This toddy takes it up to another level! Citrus!!!! I've combined fresh lemon and orange juices, sweet honey, and cinnamon. Add to that some spirits (we like spiced rum) and some hot water....you have a perfect cozy drink! This would also be very comforting after a day out on the slopes, or sledding, or shovelling, or staying inside watching everyone else....shovel.....
So, break out a couple of your favorite mugs, mix up these easy ingredients, light a fire (or turn on that fireplace station on tv) turn on some Christmas tunes...(NO ITS NOT TOO EARLY!!!!) and sip this sweet nectar....
