Bottomless Brunch at Colman's: Warm Up with a Hot Toddy
Sweaters, heavier socks, hats and gloves -- they're all prerequisites for a winter's day. But there's one thing that will warm you from the inside out, and that's the hot toddy.
A little bit of whiskey, some brown sugar, a touch of citrus and cinnamon come together for a cozy cocktail that requires even the mug it's served in is warm. Since the latest episode of Bottomeless Brunch At Colman's celebrates the Sundance Film Festival -- normally held in the chilly, snowy mountains of Park City, Utah -- the hot toddy sounded like the perfect cocktail to take us there in spirit.
