Food52 Review: Without a doubt this Hot Toddy should be put on your winter "must-make" list. Get the best pear nectar you can find and you will soon be transported to a heavenly place. The use of Asian spices give this toddy a subtle, haunting kick which make you want to keep on sippin'. This would be the perfect beverage to greet your guests with on a cold winter night or just after a vigorous day of your favorite winter sport. I am now a Hot Toddy convert! —sticksnscones
