Let's talk about how October went. The bad news: rainy weather, a chill in the air, and the sense that you really need to walk around wrapped in a fuzzy blanket to make it through. On the plus side: hot toddies! And excellent tea, and good coffee, and a nip of Scotch when nothing else will do the trick. (If all else fails, the answer is a vacation to Italy or a trip to Hawaii.) Head over to the slideshow for a peek at the best drinks we tried in October.
