Happy New Year, party friends!
January is not my favorite month, I have to say. It's hard enough getting back to a work/school routine after the end of year parties. And then the weather doesn't help one bit...
So my goal at the beginning of the year is just to eeeease myself back gently into the groove of things. And basically, just to keep warm. Brr.
That's where this Spiced Earl Grey Hot Toddy comes in super handy!
