When temperature dips and there is a nip in the air, there is something to be said for greeting your holiday guests with a mug of something warm. The team at Whitewood Events created this tasty and cozy cocktail for Thanksgiving or any autumn gathering – the Turkey Trot Toddy. Aside from being delicious, we love that it’s so easy to make and can be made in batches for a large gathering.
Pair the Turkey Trot Toddy with fresh donuts on a tiered stand and it’s the perfect mid-day or evening snack while gathering with friends and family. Cheers!
