Political Mixer

No matter your political preference, the presidential election has you feeling blue.

Celebrate or commiserate with a Texas Tottie created by local superstar chef Kent Rathbun. The warm and fuzzy cocktail is a twist on the hot toddy, an old-fashioned concoction purported to cure whatever ails you.

Depending on your mood, it might be just what the doctor ordered.
