Hot Buttered Rum
Field Guide to Cocktails
A Hot Toddy is a general cool-weather glass of cheer with limitless combinations of spirits. A blazing fire at dusk during a snowstorm was once the customary setting for sipping a Hot Toddy. While not as picturesque, a football game on a chilly afternoon is no less an appropriate backdrop for this soothing drink.
