MoCo’s Founding Farmers

Nothing beats a mug of hot tea on a cold day—unless, of course, the toasty drink has hooch in it. MoCo’s Founding Farmers’ Jon Arroyo uses English breakfast tea and rye whiskey from Copper Fox Distillery to create the Farmers Toddy. A squeeze of lemon and a little honey take the bite out of the booze. And with clove, freshly grated nutmeg and cinnamon, it smells as good as it tastes.
