The Mad Style of Rhoda Morgenstern

Last night we were supposed to put the lights on our Christmas tree, but got caught up watching what turned into a Mary Tyler Moore marathon. Mary Richards has kind of a dumb fashion sense, but Rhoda, supposedly Mary's dumpy, chubby BFF? No way, that lady can dress. Anyway, I fell asleep and dreamed that Tom put one string of lights on the tree.

This dream pairs well with the following cocktail:
Ginger-whiskey hot toddy. Take a good sized chunk of ginger, peel it and dice it up. Put it in a pot and fill it with water. Bring it to a boil. The longer you let the ginger boil, the stronger and spicier the ginger flavor will be. In a Japanese teacup (or regular mug, if you must. sigh), pour a shot of good whiskey, like Jameson. Fill it the rest of the way up with the ginger water. Add honey and lemon to taste. This drink is also good without whiskey, and is especially good when you are sick with a cold.
