Cold Nights, Hot Drinks: Warm up with a hot libation
Need motivation to leave the house and face the cold during a winter that will primarily be enjoyed outdoors? Whet your whistle with Aspen’s latest, creative takes on the snowfall-ready hot beverage. Perhaps the most famous among these is the storied hot toddy (one of the many origin stories of this legendary libation dates back to the 18th century when Irish doctor Robert Bently Todd prescribed the beverage to ward off illness).
Today, toddies are served on a multitude of menus around Aspen, but one need not restrict themselves to a single warm cocktail thanks to the array of choices available. Here, a few of our favorites.
