Pegu Club's Sleeping Monk
Pegu Club’s Kenta Goto calls this boozy but balanced concoction of chamomile-infused Scotch, lemon, honey, yellow Chartreuse, and Benedictine a Sleeping Monk, and after three or so cups, you may very well need to take a nap. It’s best sipped when the the temperature drops below 30, during a blizzard or hail storm, but even slightly nasty weather provides a good excuse.

Fort Defiance’s Hot Apple Toddy
Back in the day (the day being ca. 1792), the apple toddy was huge, according to cocktail maven David Wondrich’s Imbibe!. Then it all but disappeared. At Fort Defiance, St. John Frizell has revived an amaretto-spiked version that we hope will be around for a long time.
