Smack dab in the middle of winter it is always nice to have a hot toddy and pour a little warm comfort into your chilled body. Below are some of my favorite hot cocktail recipes. Believe it or not, even those of us in the desert Southwest need to heat up our frozen spirits at this time of year.
Don't limit yourself to drinks that call themselves toddies either, because many cold cocktails can easily be served warm. I have often served my Lemon Drop Martini hot in winter, and many Sangrias (like this Fresh Berry Sangria), and wine punches can also be served heated for a warming hot cocktail. I've also been known to heat up several of my Bloody Marys and serve those as hot soups and toddies.
