Hot Toddy

Last year, Merrill's rice pudding trounced Amanda's in our first annual A&M holiday smackdown. Now they're facing off again -- this time, over our favorite boozy wintertime comfort: the Hot Toddy!

We're upping the ante for you too -- in addition to Editors' Picks, we'll (happily) test the most promising entries and name a Wildcard winner from the Hot Toddy entries to win a special prize from Williams-Sonoma. (Go here to scope it out.)

For more details and to enter the contest, go here.

Wondering how strictly you're interpreting "toddy." I.e., will you consider a hot drink with milk in it? Thanks so much. ;o)

Tell him howdy from Texas! And ask him what cookies he wants this year. :-)

Is a hot toddy any warm adult beverage or does it need hard liquor or a specific liquor? Or broen liquor? Can it be wine based? Is there a Santa Clause?

This is from your friendly editors at Food52.

Any warm adult beverage is fair game! And looks like thirschfeld has already cleared up your other question.

I think you will have a crowded field of eager taste testers! Maybe we should organize regional Holiday Smacksowns, putting spirits back into the holidays...
