Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

I can take up the Grandma Erikson's Julglogg if you still need that tested.
Ms N. December 31, 2010
I test out the warm egg eggnog, if still available---
Food52 December 31, 2010
You got it!

New Years resolution- to stop lurking on my favorite site! It looks like the calientito still needs a tester, so I'll take that.
Food52 December 31, 2010
We fully support that resolution. But shoot -- sticksnscones just beat you to the Calientito. How about the not for Toddlers, Warm Egg Nog or Grandma Erikson's Julglogg?
sticksnscones December 31, 2010
If I"m not too late I would love to test the Calientito :}
SwoonMySpoon December 31, 2010
I'll test the "White Christmas." Sounds wonderful!
sabina December 31, 2010
manhattan hot toddy it is!
Food52 December 31, 2010
Hi sabina -- emmanation actually already snagged that one but there are plenty of recipes that still need testers (surprisingly!). Would you be interested in The White Christmas, not for Toddlers, Calientito (Warm Pear Toddy), Warm Egg Nog or Grandma Erikson's Julglogg?
AppleAnnie December 30, 2010
I'll gladly test Apple Ginger Hot Toddy!
Lori L. December 30, 2010
I'd love to try the Holiday Hot Toddy.
Lizthechef December 30, 2010
Hope you enjoy your visit to San Diego!
Lizthechef December 30, 2010
I'll try La Grande Bulleit Marnier. Thanks for nominating my Holiday Hot Toddy. Today is the coldest day of the year here in San Diego, most appropriate for the taste-testing! Happy New Year all -
lapadia December 31, 2010
Thanks for testing my Hot Toddy, Lizthechef! Thanks A&M for the ECP, and Happy New Year to all!!
fiveandspice December 30, 2010
I'm fascinated by the Narlock Men's Tom & Jerry and would love to give it a try.
Lori L. December 30, 2010
Thanks, five and spice. I hope you like it! And thank you editors. And, since I'm heading towards San Diego for our final holiday excursion, it seems only fitting to try the Holiday Hot Toddy. Happy New Year to everyone!
emmanation December 30, 2010
Since Manhattans are a staple around my house anyway, I'll happily test the Manhattan Hot Toddy.
AntoniaJames December 30, 2010
I'd love to try the Hot Milk Punch With Calvados, please. Really looking forward to it! ;o)
MuyBueno December 30, 2010
Who knew there could be so many variations to a hot toddy. I'm excited that my Calientito (Warm Pear Toddy) is an EP Candidate. I look forward to more contests! This is fun!
gingerroot December 30, 2010
Thrilled and grateful to A & M for the EP! It's been a lovely hot toddy holiday break!
drbabs December 30, 2010
I'll test the masala chai please!
Sagegreen December 30, 2010
Thanks for testing this, drbabs. If you can't get Adivasi chai, make one as strong as you dare. Hope you like it. The class at King Arthur yesterday was amazing. Just posted 2 recipes I learned there. Going back next Thursday, too. Highly recommend!
