Toddy Time

Back in the day, artist-cum-restaurant owner Rose McCormick had a penchant for 40 ounces. Luckily, her tastes have taken a turn for the high brow.  Now the co-owner of the Liberty Glass in Portland, she shares with us her take on the toddy. Serve it at your upcoming parties; you're sure to have some fans.
