    constructive criticism corner! :) i do appreciate sarah's videos for doing a little more than just mixing wine with OJ and piling on premixed fillings on toasts. we want to see you cook and make stuff, sarah!! when you guys do decide to host somebody for a segment once in a while, i think it really has to be worth it (for example, john bash rocked it!), and this is not so much the case here (she even didnt know the recipe). i realise there might be a promotional/financial angle here, but still..

    I'll tell you what! This is a fabulous recipe for a great fall/winter cocktail. Easy to make and very inexpensive. It's nice because it can be made by the pitcher so that you don't have to spend all your time in the kitchen and you can have more time with your guests. Mixture of sugar and cinnamon is just right to rim the glasses.
