Hot Toddy

My Lil’ Cook Book – Jolie1199

I’m not sure HOT TODDY should be under the Health+Fitness section because… how healthy can Whiskey be (or Brandy)?! But it sure made me feel much better when I had a bad cough! It’s the cough syrup for grown-ups!! I’d say, give it a try, see what happens!

 

Not to be confused by Usher’s song, HOT TODDY (Song link below just for kicks…OR better yet, play it on the background as you read this post).

 

My very first Hot Toddy was by far the best, it was after graduating with my Master’s degree from CSUN, summer of 2011, I went to BarMarmont at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, CA, asked the bartender to make me something warm and strong, she made me my very first Hot Toddy and it was absolutely A-m-a-z-i-n-g! Since that experience, once in a while in the gloomy cold nights when I am out and about, I order one to see if I can find one that compares… None so far, although, one spot was pretty close, but not a winner. It was at the Ritz Carlton in Central Park Manhattan, NY at their Star Lounge, second place in my book for Hot Toddies!

 

Here are my top two spots for Hot Toddy, any suggestions for where the third place winner is?!
