Christmas week is off to a slightly rough start in our household. Daniel and I are both suffering from colds, so we've been snuffling around the apartment for the past few days. On the positive side, Daniel has started fixing us hot toddies, which are amazing. We'll be headed up to Napa for Christmas this year so we didn't want to bother with a lot of decorations but we did manage to get a little live tree that we have displayed on the bookcase in our living room. I like it a lot.
We've had a lot of things going on - Christmas parties, a visit from friends in Australia, a concert at Grace Cathedral, baking cookies, etc. - but since we're focused on getting rid of our colds before Christmas, I'll just leave you with a recipe for hot toddies and call it a day.
Hot Toddy (1 serving)
1/2 oz brandy (we've been using apple brandy from the Napa Distillery and it's delicious)
1 tsp honey
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Combine ingredients in a mug and top with hot water. Drink and feel better.
