Hot Toddy and Hot Punch Recipes for Your Outside Lands After Parties

Festival goers: The weekend weather forecast is looking a bit sub-summer, especially out on the moors of Golden Gate Park. We're still praying for sun, but if you need to warm up at the festival, pick up some hot chocolate from Charles Chocolates, some coffees from Philz and Ritual and perhaps some clam chowder from Woodhouse Fish Co (full food and beverage offerings here). And after the festival, you'll probably need a warm drink. Here are two hot drink recipes from Liquor.com for your after parties.
