Winter is in full effect here on the East Coast! We can tell because all our favorite celebs are either in Miami, Hawaii or St. Barts, and because of the icicles hanging off the tips of our noses!
No worries, though. If you can’t afford the price of a ticket to a beach, but have a couple dollars for a bottle of whiskey and some garnish, you can get warm right in your own living room.
Let’s start off with the best winter drink to bust a cold: the hot toddy.
Made with whiskey, garnished with cinnamon sticks or a wedge of lemon, cloves, hot water and nutmeg, this go-to cold buster makes us think of someone else who is also dark, warm and lovely: Sports Illustrated model Damaris Lewis.
While we’re certain we don’t stand a chance of making it with Damaris, the cocktail, not the sex act, we can try this recipe below for warmth and comfort during this blustery winter!
50ml of Glenfiddiich 12 year old whiskey
20ml honey (adjust to taste)
Zest of lemon
175ml of hot water
Grating of nutmeg
Cinnamon stick to garnish
