Holiday Hot Toddy Recipes

I’m currently trying to pretend that it’s somewhere below 70-degrees in Cali-land right now. Mostly because a hot toddy by a burning fire with a heavy holiday blanket sounds like BLISS.

Here’s to hoping those of you in a winter wonderland will live my dream this weekend. Indulge in a hot toddy [or three] over the holidays. I’m spoiling you with a few different recipes to try… #COZY.
