“The Mischief Maker takes the warmth of Cooper & Thief’s red blend wine to a whole new level with the addition of fresh blood-orange juice and spiced rum. The best way to capture this hot toddy variation is in a wintry type of vibe, so consider styling elements that indicate the season, like these pine needles, or even a fireplace in the background.”
