Warm your soul with a homemade hot toddy! This adult beverage mixes cinnamon whisky with apple cider and citrus for a delicious winter drink!
Nothing like drinking on the job at 11AM. That totally happened a few weeks ago when Linley and I were shooting recipes at Fit Foodie HQ. There may have even been shots taken…I guess you’ll never know 🙂
Excited about the beauty of today’s post. Every time I get together with these ladies to do a themed post, I get so inspired to be a better blogger and photographer. I swear they get more talented every month! Today’s theme is just in time for your holiday party- COCKTAILS. One thing I wish could magically happen is all 5 of us getting together this holiday season and drinking these dranks…blogger style.

WHO’S COMING OVER FOR A COCKTAIL?
Lin and I went straight for the Hot Toddy cocktail recipe because we both love apple cider AND Fireball. You read that right. Fireball is my shot of choice. Screw vodka or rum…Fireball is the bomb! I feel like it’s a love or hate kind of liquor. I think the reason I like it so much is because it goes down smooth and leaves my mouth tasting minty fresh!
So I have to tell this story. The day Lin and I were testing this recipe, she decided on a whim to chop 8 inches off her hair. She hasn’t had hair shorter than her shoulders since EVER. She kept going back and forth between if she was going to do it or not and finally I said, woman, just take a damn shot and LET’S DO IT. And that she did. A shot was taken and 8 inches were chopped off. Sometimes that’s all you need 🙂
