Cocktail of the Month - Hot Toddy

Warm and toasty and just in time for winter, the Hot Toddy is a classic hot drink. Nearly all varieties of black, green, red or white teas mix well with the sweetness of the classic flavorings of honey and lemon, but from there it's a personal preference as to the type of brandy and other flavorings. Have fun and experiment – some interesting toddies are possible.
