Crunchy Leaves and Hot Toddies; It’s Officially Fall!

Bloomsbury Warmer

Whether the sight of golden, red and brown leaves twirling in the air and the smell of sweet northwest rain looming around every corner depresses or excites you, hopefully you can agree that hot toddy weather is something to be happy about. Nothing helps combat the inevitable cold like a soothing, warm beverage. Recently I have discovered that hot toddies, while fantastic with darker spirits, are quite incredible with gin.  Though a classic hot toddy made with a spirit of choice, hot water, lemon and honey is always a hit, I’ve been experimenting with using tea instead of just hot water. Thus far my favorite combination is a “Bloomsbury Warmer,” a combination of Aviation American Gin, hot earl grey tea, lemon, cane sugar, and orange bitters.  This drink is sure to please even your most summer-loving companions and it couldn’t be easier to make.  Celebrate the first official day of fall tonight with a delicious warm cocktail!

Stay cozy,
