Yes indeed! Contrary to what old Punxsutawney Phil would lead us to believe, it is still Winter. And I’ve noticed quite a few folks out there are sniffling and wheezing with winter colds. I know just what’s called for….a Whiskey & Orange Oat Cream Toddy! Chock full of vitamin C to build up your immune defenses and Irish Whiskey to kill any germs or at least make you feel a bit better if they’ve already managed to take hold. Unless the mercury around here suddenly takes a turn for the warmer, you’ll need one or two (or so…) of these to warm you body and soul after attending any St. Patrick’s Day parades. Both delicious and nutritious, so what are you waiting for? Sláinte!
