While waiting for a film at the Angelica, we crept into the depths of the famous Russian vodka bar in Nolita. It was a perfect escape from the blistering cold of a typical dead of winter night in New York. We all wanted something warm to drink. Anna had a mulled red wine, I tried some random tasty cocktail (which seemed like a good idea at the time) and Yuji took their seasonal hot toddy. This hot toddy kicked all our other drinks asses, as we passed it around, all taking a nice big sip of it... It had a lovely hint of vanilla mixed with the strong alcohol. This drink wins hands down for best winter drink in New York!
