Optimize Your Office Microwave
Besides being ugly sweater season at the office, November through January is the perfect time to cozy up to a big mug-full of Mulled Wine or a Hot Toddy. For some Mulled Wine, pack an airplane-sized bottle of red wine (or a full one, we won’t judge) and a small stash of fresh fruit (put that apple you always promise to eat but never do to good use). To concoct, cut up said fruit, add it to a coffee mug of red wine and microwave for one minute. Let the bubbling, mini-cauldron of wine cool, add a dash of simple syrup, a mini-bottle of brandy (or Cognac if you can find it) and stir. For the perfect microwave Hot Toddy, add a spoonful of honey to a coffee mug, squeeze in some fresh lemon, and fill the mug three quarters of the way to the top with tap water. Microwave for a minute and dump a mini-bottle of your favorite whiskey into the mug. With these hot-tails, you’ll finally be able to unplug that illegal space heater.
