Instead of my usual blather about ingredients and techniques, this week—the official kickoff of the Holiday party season—I’ll get right to the point. You’re busy, maybe a tad stressed. It’s hard work hosting friends and family in relaxed comfort. 

Sometime during the next few weeks, I’m encouraging you to relax with a warm drink. No complicated mixology. Just a simple toddy—with alcohol or not—that smells great, tastes festive, and gives you and your sous chef/bottle washer/helper elf a chance to put your feet up for a minute.
