The 12 Drinks of Christmas: Day 1

This holiday season let’s spread Christmas cheer to all those around us.  What better way to heighten the spirits of friends and family than with a cocktail? For the next 12 days we’ll highlight a new or classic cocktail for you to enjoy this holiday season.  Put on your Santa hat and saddle up your reindeer, we’re heading down candy cane lane.

This is better than a partridge in a pear tree. I promise.

On the first day of Christmas my true love poured for me:

The Hot Toddy

2 ounces Bourbon

1 ounce Baronjaeger (optional)

Juice from one lemon

4 ounces boiling water

1 tablespoon honey

Combine the bourbon, Baronjaeger, lemon, and hot water in a pitcher or shaker and stir honey in as it melts.  Strain into a glass coffee mug and garnish with a lemon peel.  Serves two.
