I have to warn you that there is some gratuitous tableware in this post. Steampunk type things draw me in 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 immediately fell in love with them. My favorite part about the cup is the octopus suckers on the handle.
Okay, enough about my dish fetish and on to the real reason you’re here – a new recipe. This one is for a warm, cozy drink for fall. While summer seems to be holding on as tight as it can, sitting out on the deck last night I could feel a slight chill in the air.
You’ll find it so easy to brew up a tasty toddy. It’s just spicy tea mixed with some bourbon and maple syrup. If you’re coming down with a cold I’d suggest adding the optional lemon juice.
You should feel free to add the liquor you have a taste for and I would strongly suggest trying it with some rum. Maybe try a little Kraken Black Spiced Rum, it’s gluten-free, vegan, delicious and it has a Kraken on the label!
