Hot Tennessee Toddy

Happy December! What a fun-filled month this is! So many memories waiting to be made, and the kids are getting excited for Christmas. Okay, parents are getting excited too, but the kids are all abuzz with the holiday spirit right now.

While we are wading through the last few weeks of the school term, and waiting for the fun of the winter break to come upon us – there is still some fun waiting to be had! Say HELLO to Friday!! With the nip of the winter chill in the air, this is the PERFECT time of year to enjoy a Hot Tennessee Toddy! This is one of my favorite drinks each winter, and I keep the ingredients stocked on the top of my fridge to ensure that these can be made at the drop of a hat. Check in at your local Class Six and get your ingredients today! WInter is going to be with us for a little while, but that does not mean that we cannot sit back and enjoy the quiet moments in the evening. After a crazy week of work, and prepping for the holiday fun at the end of the month, a little relaxation is just what the doctor ordered – Dr. Jack Daniels to be exact. Kick back, put up your feet, and let this warm drink soothe you from the inside out!
