Rumor has it, as always, Sundance is bringing a snowstorm along with the masses of people in black for the 10 day festival of stars and movies. If you are brave enough to venture out into the Sundance scene, stop at one of these Park City eateries for a hot drink pick-me-up.
This refreshing take on a traditional hot drink uses local whiskey and honey to make it a real Utah treat. The hot toddy hails from Scotland and was created to ward off the wet and cold before retiring to bed. Blending High West campfire whiskey, local Utah honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange, this savory drink will warm you through and through. The Brass Tag is located at The Lodges in Lower Deer Valley, 2900 Deer Valley Drive East.
Anything with the word butter in it is a drink I must try. Powder at Waldorf Astoria never fails when it comes to artfully crafted cocktails. The hot buttered rum, a drink concocted after the explorers discovered rum in the Caribbean, replaced the hot toddy made with whiskey. Adding a pat of butter to the heated drink created comfort food in a mug for the early American colonists. Of course, Powder put their own twist on this steamy drink with Sailor Jerry spiced rum, chocolate bitters, housemade butter compound and a nutmeg meringue. Head over to Powder and relax with another classic cocktail. Powder at Waldorf Astoria is located at 2100 Frostwood Drive in The Canyons Village.
For a family-friendly hot drink stop on Main Street, check out Atticus Tea and Books. Extended Sundance hours from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Jan. 19-28 will help you heat up anytime of the day. Exotic blends of teas and artfully prepared coffee drinks await in this locally-owned eatery filled with books and eclectic gifts to keep you entertained. Might we recommend the red velvet hot chocolate. It’s like having your cake and sipping it too. A vibrant red blend mixed with warm milk and topped with a generous amount of whipped cream.

Stay toasty my friends!
