This is a good hot drink. I have put both the "Leaded and unleaded" versions in this recipe

I didn't think this was going to be that special, but with the brandy added it was so scrumptious ;the flavors were so complimentary. I cut the recipe down to a single serving and added 1 1/2 TBLS of the Brandy which I thought was perfect - not overwhelming or too boozy. It definitely warmed me up after several hours of doing my taxes. Made for kzbhanson's cookathon.
