a meal-finisher for some friends, who came in tonight to celebrate their anniversary. they wanted something warming and whiskey-ish to finish their after-meal afterglow with. not super-sweet, which i was worried about til she told me how much she hated sweet toddies. thank you, unconscious mind-reading brain; i owe you (another) one.
