The Tuaca Hot Tottie combines the vanilla citrus liqueur with fresh lemon juice and honey for a delicious new version of the traditional drink. Tuaca was created in the 16th century for Lorenzo de Medici, the legendary ruler of Florence and visionary benefactor of Renaissance art and architecture. It was rediscovered in Italy in 1938, and was introduced into the U.S. by servicemen returning from WWII. Recipe compliments of The Arizona Biltmore
in Phoenix, Arizona. It's perfect for a Christmas holiday celebration
, or just a quiet evening around the fireplace.
