Hot Teddy

Hot Teddy

A warm, cozy drink is the perfect cure for stormy, cold, winter days. Add some chocolate or pumpkin (this season’s ultimate comfort food ingredients) and a splash of alcohol for a delectable drinking experience.

Get out your favorite teddy bear or other stuffed animal for cuddling while sipping on this drink. Acting like a child again never felt this good!
