Author Notes

An adult version of hot cocoa that replaces the marshmallow toppers with cognac and dark rum. This drink will keep you warm all through the winter. Yummm....I am thinking of making one now - oh wait, I am still at work. I am sure my boss will not mind if I promise to share. Just kidding ladies and gentlemen! Happy Holidays and enjoy all of the great hot toddies posted in the Annual Smackdown. —Table9
