What's your favorite hot toddy recipe?

tristis | Oct 16, 201204:46 PM     3

Fall is upon us, winter is creeping up, and the temperatures are dropping, especially at night here in San Francisco. Which, to me, means that it's hot toddy season once again. My preferred method is a teaspoon of honey, a tot of brandy (I like to use Paul Masson Grande Amber for this because it's relatively inexpensive), a few ounces of hot water, and a cinnamon stick, which I like to let steep in the drink for a few minutes before drinking. Won't actually cure a cold, but makes you feel better about having one.

I'm eager to hear what other recipes people enjoy, though, especially since there are essentially no prescribed ingredients in a hot toddy.
