Wassail Hot Toddy should be on everyone’s holiday cocktail list! Easy to make and perfect for all your holiday parties!
Tis the season of holiday parties, cheese balls and finger foods. So head to your closet, pull out your ugly sweater and blinking reindeer earrings because you are about to be the life of the party… with a Wassail Hot Toddy!
A Wassail Hot Toddy combines one of my favorite Sweetland Cellar wines, Spiced Wassail. Sweetland Cellars is a line of 6 fruit infused flavors that will reframe your idea of wine. All-natural ingredients including fruit juices, zests and select spices are slowly steeped into base wines at a cool temperture, filtered and then immediately bottled. The result is a sweet, but smooth wine blend. 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.
Hot Toddys seem to be the latest in cocktail trends. Originating in Scotland and Ireland, the traditional hot toddy is made with whiskey, but is actually defined as any liquor or wine served warm with honey, spices and herbs. A Wassail Hot Toddy utilizes natural ingredients like clove, cinnamon and orange peel to create a warm aroma that will have you smiling the moment you unscrew the cap. Just add brandy, honey and a spritz of lemon for the a festive holiday cocktail. Garnish with a rosemary sprig laced with cranberries and a lemon wedge to make it visually and aromatically stunning.
