No, I'm not saying that Marmee from Little Women was hot. I'm saying that using marmalade as a base for a hot toddy is delicious.
I made a few half pints of this tangerine based marmalade a few days ago and started using it on everything. Piled on crackers with goat cheese- check. On buttered breakfast toast-natch. Hot toddy- oh yeah.
Lacking meyer lemons, I used a little more than half a grapefruit instead. It made it more on the bitter side, more of a 'Vintage Oxford' style of British marmalade. I also substituted honey for a quarter cup of white sugar to give it a richer flavor.
For the toddy: A spoonful of marmalade, hot water, a glug of bourbon. Not an exact science for me, obviously. I do prefer bourbon to whiskey, though, because it rounds out the marmalade nicely- but I'm sure that whatever you've got on hand will work well on a cold night.
