An Aside

🥃 For those wondering, this is the “authentic” recipe for a “Cool Toddy”:

  • 2 fingers of Costco/Kirkland 12-yr big-bottle blended scotch
  • 1 finger of Brown County port
  • 2 large cubes of ice

If you want to diverge a bit you can use different whiskys/whiskies and different ports (I prefer tawny if diverging), but part of the point is to keep it reasonably priced rather than buying rare sherry- or port-casked whisky.
