Maple Spiced Hot Toddy – Perfect for Fall!

Maple Spiced Toddy - bourbon, spices and tea brewed together for the perfect fall beverage! #toddy

I have to warn you that there is some gratuitous tableware in this post. I am drawn to steampunk things and that means lots of octopi (Octopuses?) and Krakens, not to mention goggles and crafty things. I got these dishes at Anthropologie last year. While they aren't exactly for day to day use, I … [Go to Full Post...]
