Thanksgiving 101: Turkey Trot Toddy

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!
