The coming of winter means different things to different people. For some it’s Brussels sprouts, garish Christmas jumpers and office party misbehaviour, but for me it is the opportunity to sample my favourite festive indulgence – a hot toddy by the fire. Time and place are essential elements in this recipe. For me this is comfy armchair beside a well stoked peat fire in my parents’ house in the islands. Dark has fallen, dinner is not yet ready but I have earned this winter warmer by virtue of being outside in the snow all day.
