Stocking the Bar Housewarming Gift for the Winter

This hot toddy housewarming gift basket was just the thing for my bother-in-law and his new wife, who just moved to the Midwest from Arizona. In a way, it’s like wrapping them in a big ol’ boozy hug for the next few months!

The tea and whiskey are comforting enough in their own rite, but add a squeeze of lemon juice and a swirl of honey, and you’ll be able to make it through any snow day!
