After playing around with numerous ideas for a Wintery Hot Drink I came up with this…
Cranberry-Blood Orange Maple Hot Toddy
This drink is now featured on the Royal Palms Resort & Spa’s T. Cook Lounge Menu
Add Cranberries to a large mug muddle only to break the cranberry not mash. Then add all ingredients except the Cranberry-Blood Orange Tea, after all ingredients are added pour tea to desired strength of drink; the stronger you like it pour less tea, weaker pour more tea.
* To Burn the orange twist simply light a match or lighter holding it in your right hand over the drink and hold the orange rind in your left hand (with your index finger on the top end of the twist and your thumb on the bottom end of the twist) and next to the lit match bend the orange peel … you should see a few sparks, then twist the rind into the drink…. that’s it! Be Careful you are playing with fire!

Roast Organic Peppers of your choice on the stove top at medium high heat
A gas stove is best but it will also work on electric
Char peppers on all sides turning with tongs
When good and chared, steam for 10 minutes in a covered dish or a paper bag rolled closed at the top so steam doesn’t escape
Rinse the peppers and rub off the burnt parts, it is ok to leave a little

While in Cambria, we came across this amazing gem of a shop. They have Succulents of all kinds, most I bet you have never seen before!
The shop is located through another shop called The Garden Shed in the back. While talking to the owner Nick Wilkinson, ( who was very helpful and extremely informative ) we realized he was a friend of a friend! Small world!!!
Plants in an old sink is only one of their cool displays
Love the old tractor with all the drift wood
Vintage signs are everywhere
Robby had this red wagon when he was a kid
