Warm Holiday Cheer: Hot Toddies, Hot Buttered Rum . . .

Melanie Wong | Dec 11, 201312:28 AM     12

While we're all still kvetching about the current cold snap, I'll report that I joined a friend for a holiday drink at Presidio Social Club on Sunday afternoon. Yes, the bar stays open all day long on Sundays. And not only does it feel clubby, PSC is warm and toasty inside even when its 40 degrees outside. It was a great joy to banish the chill, and even take off my coat and scarf, and get comfy on the overstuffed upholstery. No problem sitting next to the window, as there's a heating strip lining the wall guarding against cold drafts. And for even more warmth, we ordered hot toddies.

Asked whether we wanted whiskey or brandy toddies, we opted for one of each to compare. The whiskey one was stronger, drier, and more woodsy. The brandy version felt more feminine, a touch sweeter, and had a longer finish. Both were garnished with a lemon slice studded with three cloves.

Tonight at Pläj, I tried to order Glögg, and was most disappointed that it was not available.

So, I'm wondering where your favorite hot alcoholic libations can be found?
