So, the highways and roads were a bit slippery with tonight’s snowfall. Traffic was slow due to multiple auto accidents and road conditions.
But it is Wisconsin. And it is January. And it warmed up to 13°F — which is better than this morning at -8°F.
Glad to be off the roads. Time to warm up with a hot toddy. Awhile back I read this article from The Guardian on how to make the best hot toddy. My tonic is pretty simple: 2 ounces of boiled water, 1 ounce Knob Creek, 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, a pinch of nutmeg and 3 cloves.
But what if I am out of cloves?
Here is the big question for tonight, do I substitute nutmeg and cloves with a stick of cinnamon? What is your recipe for the perfect winter night hot toddy?
