If there's one cocktail worth celebrating in this weather, it's the hot toddy. It will make you feel better if you're sick, cold or just want a drink. And here's an excuse to drink one: January 11 is National Hot Toddy Day. There are several versions of the drink, so you can make it as strong or sweet as you like. The traditional Scottish preparation is just whiskey, boiling water, and sugar or honey (we prefer honey). The Irish make it with Irish whiskey, brown sugar, lemon, cloves and hot water. It's also common to mix it with tea instead of just hot water -- try lemon tea, honey and whiskey if you're at home. If you want to venture out, check out some of our favorite hot toddies and where to get them.
