A few days ago, my old co-worker Ken-ichi (who’s now devoting more time to iNaturalist) remarked that I rarely write about cocktails anymore. I told him it’s because since I moved, I haven’t been filling the ice-cube trays, so whenever I do feel like a drink, there’s no ice in the house to make one.
Well, here’s one that doesn’t require an ice-cube: a hot kumquat toddy featuring kumquat jam. It’s all natural because I made the kumquat jam myself. It’s nothing but kumquats, sugar, and water. Even the pectin was extracted by me, instead of bought in a store.
