Of all the days it chooses to snow like a New York one, Christmas here in Atlanta is (sort of) white! The snow is falling wildly outside, flights are canceled, nothing’s sticking, and everyone’s freaking – happy white Christmas, y’all!

We’re building a fire, watching National Lampoon’s, drinking hot toddies and getting high on brisket fumes – what are you doing?

Below, a delicious recipe for my newly favorite holiday drink – the very adult, very warming, traditional Scottish hot toddy.
Hot Scotch Toddy
- 2 measures Scotch whiskey
- 3 measures boiling water
- 1/2 measure lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey (or brown sugar)
- 3 drops angostura bitters
- 1 slice lemon, studded with cloves
- ground nutmeg
Put the sugar, bitters, lemon juice, and clove-studded lemon slice in the glass. Add the Scotch and pour in the boiling water. Stir to dissolve the sugar and sprinkle with ground nutmeg.
