In which Elizabeth broadcasts live from her bulb bunker and Amy drinks from a Pyrex measuring cup for lack of more suitable barware.
Here's Elizabeth's hot toddy recipe:
Bourbon hot toddy
2 parts hot lemon mix (using 2 cups water, 1/4 cup sugar rubbed with lemon peel, juice of 2 lemons, boiled until dissolved)
1 part American Honey (from makers of Wild Turkey bourbon)
Pour into heavy rocks glass
(Ed: Weirdly, there seems to be no website devoted to American Honey, so we send you to BevMo instead.)
And here's Amy's hot apple cider toddy:
Half a mug of hot, mulled apple cider
A jigger (1.5 oz) of apple brandy, applejack, or Calvados. Amy used Harvest Spirits Hudson Valley Apple Brandy.
A pony (1 oz, or .75 oz will do) Drambuie.
Garnish with a slice of apple.
Okay, here's your cocktail hour! (See more cocktail hours here.)
