Where to Drink Hot Toddies in Atlanta This Winter

Victory Sandwich Bar.

Quick, lets play a little game of association. When we say the words "snow day" what do you think of, Atlanta? That's right, the two acceptable answers are "hot fire" or a "hot toddy" (or possibly, "120 oz. of chocolate pudding"). That's why we've rounded up some of the city's best and most creative takes on the toddy—some of them even served up within snuggling distance of a crackling fire. Do leave other favorites in the comments.
