Rose Hot Toddy (classy & not so classic)
Hot toddies are such a great way to warm up the body in the colder months, especially around the holidays as they just scream coziness and festivities... They are as easy to make as they are a joy to sip on, could not be easier to make. For this classy mocktail/cocktail, you’ll only need hand full of ingredients. Unlike their cousins such as mulled wine or wassail or warm cider, hot toddies are quite light and super hydrating in comparison.
Enjoy a cup yourself or share it with loved ones over dinner or after dinner for a delicious warming time.
