They Call Me King Hov, copy?

Temps are dropping, and I’m warming up by grooving to that sizzling new Usher and Jay-Z song Hot Tottie.

When I first heard this track, I immediately thought about the hot toddy cocktail. Could this be 2010’s Gin & Juice? Then I listened to the lyrics. You can pretty much tell they aren’t talking about a cocktail. So I did what any super white girl does when she isn’t sure of the latest slang. I turned to the Urban Dictionary.

Hot Toddy:
As made famous by the 2010 Usher song "Hot Toddy" featuring Jay-Z and Ester Dean, a "Hot Toddy" is a person with whom you conduct a sexual relationship under the implicit understanding that each participant may be maintaining a separate monogamous sexual relationship with another, all of whom who must remain unaware of this activity
Well, here on Thirsty Thursday, I wanted to salute the original Hot Toddy – which coincidentally features a ‘shot of brandy.’

Hot Toddy Recipe from

1 ounce brandy or rum
1 ounce honey
1/2 lemon slice studded with 2 cloves
Cinnamon stick (optional)

Combine the brandy, honey, and lemon slice in a mug or punch cup, and add hot water to fill. Stir with a cinnamon stick, if desired.
