    A Wassail Hot Toddy combines one of my favorite Sweetland Cellar wines, Spiced Wassail. Sweetland Cellars is a brand producing a line of 6 fruit-infused flavors that will reframe your idea of wine.

    All-natural ingredients including fruit juices, fruit zest, and select spices are slowly steeped into base wines at a cool temperature. They are then filtered and promptly bottled.

    Make sure you PIN Wassail Hot Toddy!

    The result is a delicious and smooth wine blend with a bit more pizazz. While a glass of Sweetland Cellars blends are an excellent choice for any party or Friday night on the couch, they can also be transformed into creative wine cocktails.

    I would venture to guess that we all know what a hot toddy is, but if not, let’s get right to it. Originating in Scotland and Ireland, the traditional hot toddy was made with whiskey, honey, lemon juice, and perhaps some cinnamon.

    And while many people still make theirs with whiskey, the definition of this classic drink has now extended to include any liquor or wine served warm with honey, spices, and/or herbs.

    To make one, you simply layer all the ingredients in a mug or glass cup with a handle. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

    Spiced Wassail utilizes warming ingredients like clove, cinnamon, and orange peel to create a festive aroma that will have you smiling the moment you unscrew the cap.

    All you need to do at home is add brandy, honey, and a little spritz of lemon for the ultimate in celebratory holiday cocktails. Garnish with a rosemary sprig studded with cranberries and a lemon wedge to make it as visually stunning as it is aromatically intriguing.

    Make it large batches for a festive party or enjoy a cup in front of the fire on a cold day with a few close friends or family members. It is comfort in a cup.

    And while this version of a hot toddy is great on its own, it really shines when paired with a fantastic protein. Try it with:
