I’ve never mentioned it before but I LOVE mead. Partly due to me being a history nerd and partly due to the delicious honey taste. My favorite mead thus far is Lover’s mead, made by Honeymoon Mead and Cider in Bellingham, Washington. This is their trademark mead and is extremely natural and well made. That being said, since it is winter time and all, I’ve decided to shine some light on the Hot Mead Toddy. I first came across this drink on Meadist.com and have since added it to my list of winter time favorites!
